Expected Behaviour of Grief

When a soul slips from the surface of this realm
To float in the ether and observe their passing and history
A magnifier falls over the lives of those that remain
Rollicking enjoyment momentarily becomes frowned upon
As a silent deep dive into meaning and purpose prevails
Accompanies memories in honour of the recently departed
When the Grim Reaper swings and harvests unexpectedly
Sadness and guilt mingle with anger and confusion
The clandestine forces of the Universe striking opposition
Understanding temporarily suspended in disbelief
While healing creeps slowly into the valves of the heart
Attempted expulsion in clinging to the phases of grief
Recovery falsely perceived as disrespectfully forgetting
Instead of the truth of releasing in loving commemoration
To continue the reverent journey of the immortal spirit
