It’s Okay To Cry #RIPJulimuffn #iCelebrateJulie

I wrote this tribute to Julie’s friends because the pain seeps through to you as well. I met her once or twice, but I remember she was a warm soul. I hope you find comfort.

Some things gnaw at your heart
I have no similes to add
They just gnaw
You gasp for breath
Trying to do it with dignity
So that they don’t see you wailing
Breaking down
Falling apart
Accepting that it’s hard to bear.

It is hard to bear
When you see all your friends in pain
When to them the sun is absent
All that falls is rain
They’ve lost a friend
One that can’t be regained
And you cannot help
But weep with them.

Most people would say move on
Coz life is actually not moved
It keeps going ahead like a train
Going ahead like a symphony being played
Bills demanding to be paid
Ticker news scrolling by
Everything going on the same.
But it isn’t the same without your friend
Life has greyed
You’re struggling with memories
And dreams you couldn’t understand
And that call that Friday night
That text that got you thinking
“This must be a joke”.

You want to cry,
It’s okay to cry.
Don’t keep it in
Don’t try to be strong
Especially when you can’t.
So, celebrate her in tears
Celebrate her with laughter
Soothe your pain with her memory.

The one who holds her now
Holds your heart
If time is too slow
Rest in the one who makes time
Don’t try to be strong
Especially when you can’t,
So Celebrate her in tears
Celebrate her with laughter
Soothe your pain with her memory.
