You heal
And you move on
But the trauma
Never leaves you
Does it
The grief is there
During your Shabbath nap
As cozy and comfortable
And safe and accomplished
As you are
Your heart still cries
That they cannot be here
With you
Enjoying this level of peace
The sacrifices
You had to make
To be healthy and true and safe
You had to lose
The people most important to you
And that never leaves you
Does it
