I’ve included a few poems below – they are all available on the internet. I have ‘Death is nothing at all’, and ‘We find a place for what we lose’ printed out and displayed prominently in my office, so that I can’t but help see them if I choose to look at the spot where they are leaning up against the wall.
For some reason, I find these 2 poems helpful with coping with my sadness from losing my animals. As time has gone by, after each death, I have found that time has changed my grief. However, it is always in the back of my mind, and sometimes I look at where these 2 poems are on my wall and re-read them. At other times, I find that I can’t bear to read them.
Anyway, there are links to those 2, plus a few others . They are there if you want to read them.
