"After great pain, a formal feeling comes -
The Nerves sit ceremonious, like Tombs-
The stiff Heart questions
was it He, that bore,
And Yesterday, or Centuries before?
The Feet, mechanical, go round-
Of Ground, or Air, or Ought-
A Wooden way
A Quartz contentment, like a stone-
This is the Hour of Lead-
Remembered, if outlives,
As Freezing persons, recollect the Snow-
First-Chill-then Stupor-then the letting go-"
by Emily Dickinson
Grief is a highly personal and normal response to life-changing events, a natural process that can lead to healing and personal growth.
There are Five Stages of Grief
Professional help, such as psychological and/or spiritual counselling can help a great deal by guiding you through the stages and arrive at “acceptance” with more ease.
