Sometimes words may say nothing…
When in grief, losing a very dear person, words may say nothing…
This lens is more than a sympathy note, it is a poem dedicated to all the people that we are down at one moment in life while being in grief for the ones that we loved so much, were very important to us, but passed the way too soon…
Sometimes words are not enough to comfort our grieving adults soul when we have to face, handle and adjust to an irreversible loss…
Sometimes words may say nothing, sometimes friendship cannot help as much as it’s supposed to do or we are willing for,
Sometimes our thoughts may reach in a delicate moment, sometimes we hope that they may count…
As simple humans… we may not function or feel by the book, so, are moments in life when…
We are up or we are down,
We need help or we are brave,
We are strong or we are weak,
We don’t care or we get involved,
We treasure or we blame,
We vanish or we cherish…
Sometimes we feel that we do belong to this strange world and we’re accepted, sometimes we cannot find our peace or place within the self,
Sometimes we live at fullest, hope and dream, sometimes we’re hurt and hit the bottom,
Sometimes we desperately need to share and love, sometimes we cannot bear ourselves,
Sometimes we get frustrated and confused with each new element encountered, sometimes we learn to be happy with every single thing around,
Sometimes we think that we’ve experienced so many things already and we would be able to handle anything, while sometimes we cannot see the light and get the drive for one more single step ahead…
But always, always, when we take few moments to look deep inside our soul, listen to our heart, trust our inner self and strength, our mind we’ll find a way to help us made it to the surface!

Words can deeply touch and penetrate the deepest part of our hearts and souls, when spoken with honesty and passion directly from the heart.
When words are used to comfort someone who’s grieving, it helps them feel that they are not alone, are loved and have a shoulder to comfort on, so, words can bring a drop of tranquility, hope and enlightenment.
But sometimes, words, may not be enough to help empower the mind of a grieving person, and I deem that for a grieving person to heal and recover, she/ he or she needs a lot of of space and healing time alone in order to be able to fully accept the loss and go through the whole process of healing and recovery, to be able to pray and meditate, to think and reflect on life as a whole will definitely help.
