Poems about Grief


Say not in grief that she is no more
but say in thankfulness that she was
A death is not the extinguishing of a light,
but the putting out of the lamp
because the dawn has come.



You are a man of belief.
How is it that you dare not believe
That your earthly grief
Itself is mortal?

Sri Chinmoy, Ten Thousand Flower-Flames, Part 82, Agni Press, 1983.
