When the shock wears off

No more necessary actions to take

Arrangements made and fulfilled

Relatives come and gone

Friends no longer call

Even cards have been sent

“The family of — thanks you

For your expression of sympathy

The last casserole dish’s been returned

Back into life again

Then the real pain seeps through

That’s the time for a card or call

A lifeline through the bitter woe

A reminder that someone

Else remembers your loss

And cares
