In the face of the death of a loved one, those left behind often experience a passage from sorrow into the recovery of hope. While the pain may never fully disappear, time can diminish its sting.
Journey to Lights presents a collection of short poems that reflect author Honey Nguyen’s own journey of thriving following loss, grief, and widowhood. These verses demonstrate that it is possible to suffer tragedy and still retain a pure heart of hope, full of belief and love.
Then they parted.
The road was filled with quiet sorrow.
Loneliness seemed to be like it should be.
Winter broke into tears.
I will make you a new sweater
By the gloomy sun of winter,
With the winter’s broken smiles,
Filled with its dry tears.
