Grief Tearbook: Hope Dream

Early stages of grief: recognizing there is a problem and sadness, yet trying to avoid and bargain with it.

I chase a dream        to make it seem        that someone still loves me.

But he ere must go,         seems it must be so.        What I get doesn’t flatter me.

I shed a tear.        I wish for beer, but none of it can help.


From my dream I must wean, rough realities do seem mean.

Oh, to be a puppy with hope for a yelp.
