Just So You Know

Just so you know…

I cannot stop grieving just because
you believe it is time for me to move on.

I cannot stop hurting just because
you do not understand the piercing pain in my heart.

I cannot stop my tears from flowing just because
they make you uncomfortable.

I cannot mend my heart just because
you believe I have grieved long enough.

I will grieve the loss of my loved one for the rest of my life.

Just so you know.
