The Empty Hole

Exterior thankful whole
Interior broken heart holds

Grief assimilate tide's ebbs and flows
Five stages conclusion sudden undertow

No prelude exhaustive process loss
Survivors bear unfathomable cross

Acceptance unchosen future alone alas
Society's behavior liken senseless crass

Sadness empty gape forever unpaved
Thankful Lord concrete strength faith gave.
