My Journey w/ Grief - Visit to Grandparents

Visit to Grandparents

unannounced visit
greetings of joy and delight
happiness from the surprise arrival of grandchildren

but old eyes do not see
the tear stained faces
the raw red eyes of each visitor
the mood is quickly changed
“something has happened”
“Nathan is dead”

sobs, wails, cries of “no not Nathan” ring out
hugs of welcome now twisted into embraces of grief and disbelief
a son, a brother, a grandson is dead
