Expired Sadness

Mourning a recent loss is hard

Mourning a recently found out loss is hard

Like the grief stages are already done

And the pain you feel is unrelatable

A distant pain awakens

A child I've never had

A grandpa I've never known

The family I could have had

The sadness I didn't get to feel

Is an approaching tsunami

I'm waiting on the floor

For the waves to wash over me

Cleanse me of this expired sadness
