Dealing with Loss 2

The inevitable cycle of life. Be here one minute, be gone the next. Live and die. The famous words of Will Rogers, “Don’t Let Yesterday Take Up Too Much Of Today,” reminds one to always move on. Don’t let the tragic events of the past prevent you from living in today, planning for tomorrow. Because the memories will always live on. A rainbow that makes the rainy days better.

And when great souls die,
after a period peace blooms,
slowly and always
irregularly. Spaces fill
with a kind of
soothing electric vibration.
Our senses, restored, never
to be the same, whisper to us.
They existed. They existed.
We can be. Be and be
better. For they existed.

– Maya Angelou
Excerpt from When great trees fall
