Like an Ocean

By Jamie’s Mom

Grief is like an Ocean
It is deep
It is wide
It covers most of the surface
It has waves that can be jumped over
It has waves that swallow you up,
Tumble you about
and spit you up on shore when they are done with you
Just like the ocean grief is dark and mysterious
And has many odd creatures in its depths,
things of which we shall never know
The ocean can drown
Grief drowns
