How long

What does grief look like?

A cleaned out refrigerator
An organized closet

A misspelled word
A forgotten conversation

An empty stomach
An overgrown appetite

A light left on in the kitchen
An overdue library book

A burst of tears
An expressionless face

A clutched blanket
A worn out teddy bear.

They say grief takes time
And time takes time

Decades of dreaming about you
Years of wanting you

Months of planning for you
32 weeks growing you
The rest of my life without you

yet loving you

So how long will my grief take?
