When you’re drowning
in an ocean
you learn to catch your breath
between the waves…

One moment
one breath
at a time.

When you’re lost
in a sea of grief
and someone makes you
or laugh
if only for a little while,
you learn to grasp
that beautiful moment.
Hold it.
Let it linger.

And the waves
they keep coming.
But I’m learning
how to survive
waves of grief.
