is it true, is it kind, is it necessary

When loved ones pass away,
you may feel great sorrow.
You may cry for hours on end,
but when you cry,
You cry for your loss, not theirs.
sometimes you will even try to cut yourself off from the outside world.
Once you take a minute to realize what has happened,
It’s not so bad.
when a loved one passes away,
They don’t want you to grieve their leaving,
they want you to feel joyous,
For they have left their solid form,
they have left the burdens of everyday life,
But they will never leave you.

they are with you in spirit.

Every second of every minute,
every minute of every hour,
Every hour of every day,
every day of every year.
They are with you always.
in fact, they might be watching you right now,
While you read this poem.
never forget your loved ones.
For they will never forget you.
