One Step

grief will wait
unhindered by time
what you ignore
travels with you
fantasy living
delays
the healing process
that scares you
as you resist
reality
one step at a time

one step, one step
you gingerly
plunge into acceptance
gradually feeling
all of the sorrow
that spilled
into your heart
when the presence
of their love
stopped flowing in

you’ll be okay
it’s one step, one step
day upon day
that’s how the love
came to root
first a seed
then a sapling
into a flourishing
undeniable
bushy green love
with roots forever
embedded in your soul
and painfully gladly so

you’ll be okay
one step, one step
