Flow of a funeral.

Shock. Sadness. Grief. Pain. Regret.

Quick plans. Bereavement fares. Last minute seats.

Supportive job. Supportive parents. Supportive friends.

Reality. Love. Channeled strength from the one gone.

Closed casket. Family members. Spirituality.

Hands held. Cheeks kissed. Tears streamed.

Mortality magnified. Thought.


Memories. Food. Family. Friends. Strength in numbers.


Clean up. Continual goodbyes. Revelations.


Tears. Questions. Reality.


Finality. Headstone. Acceptance.

Lesson learned from the deceased.

Meaning. Growth.
