I Heard Her Laugh

(My First Step in Healing from Grief)

I heard her laugh
I don’t know why
That was the first time since
Her little brother died
I’ve heard her tears
They fell like rain
Today she finally rose above the pain
I heard her laugh
We struggle through the sorrow
The still unanswered whys
The quiet empty places
That once were so alive
our loss is overwhelming
Our lives are torn in half
We pray for tiny blessings
And today, I heard her laugh
