Walking with Grief

Do not hurry

as you walk with grief;

it does not help the journey.

Walk slowly

pausing often; 

do not hurry

as you walk with grief.

Be not disturbed

by memories that 

come unbidden

Swiftly forgive;

and let Christ speak for you

unspoken words.

Unfinished conversation

will be resolved in Him.

Be not disturbed.

Be gentle

with the one 

who walks with grief.

If it is you,

be gentle with yourself.

Swiftly forgive; 

Walk slowly, 

pausing often.

Take time, be gentle

as you walk with grief.
