A New Beginning

I opened up my heart
To the possibility
That people understand
What grief has done to me

To find another person
Who’s sharing this deep pain
May change that sense of loss
Might help us to explain

Our grief brought us together
Now never will we part
A little piece for everyone
We’ll share within our heart

Something we can cherish
Friendship ‘tween me and you
Through all this gloom and darkness
A little light breaks through
