I dance where there is no music,
I sing when there is no song,
I cry out when there are no words, and…
I am silent when the world is shouting out!
I heal when there is no medicine,
I carry your burdens when others put them down,
I love when others hate me, and
I forgive when I should keep a record of wrongs.
I live when death surrounds me, and
I die to self to preserve your life.
(Poem written in the early days of grief)
