The Acceptance Stage of Grief lets one recognize the gravity of the sadness, yet consider that holding on to the grief forever serves no purpose. This stage is the hint of moving on with one’s life:
Giving up is not all bad.
One thing’s for sure; it’s so very sad.
Divorce? Among my friends that’s not the fad.
Someday my aim is to again be glad . . .
Things can never be like they were.
Because ‘were’ is gone and it’s just a mere blur . . .
