    Please be gentle with me for I am grieving.
    The sea I swim in is a lonely one
    and the shore seems miles away.
    Waves of despair numb my soul
    as I struggle through each day.
    My heart is heavy with sorrow.
    I want to shout and scream
    and repeatedly ask 'why?'
    At times, my grief overwhelms me
    and I weep bitterly,
    so great is my loss.
    Please don’t turn away
    or tell me to move on with my life.
    I must embrace my pain
    before I can begin to heal.
    Companion me through tears
    and sit with me in loving silence.
    Honor where I am in my journey,
    not where you think I should be.
    Listen patiently to my story,
    I may need to tell it over and over again.
    It’s how I begin to grasp the enormity of my loss.
    Nurture me through the weeks and months ahead.
    Forgive me when I seem distant and inconsolable.
    A small flame still burns within my heart,
    and shared memories may trigger
    both laughter and tears.
    I need your support and understanding.
    There is no right or wrong way to grieve.
    I must find my own path.
    Please, will you walk beside me?

    That poem is so beautiful and so true. Some people who have never gone through a MC do not understand how hard it truly is. When we see the two lines on the test we automatically think of our future and plan and wish and smile but when it is taken away all of our hopes and dreams are too. Your friend is a brilliant writer and a truly good friend.
