Signs of Grief
Desperate texts to a friend, asking for a hug.
Puffy red eyes, unkempt hair, a day in pajamas.
Spending hours wondering what will set you off if you go to the grocery store.
Hugging your childhood teddy bear tight, leaving tear stains on his furry face.
Waking up surrounded by used tissues.
Rescheduled meetings, cancelled plans, days staring out the window.
Eyeglasses falling into the toilet while cleaning, and the tear ducts break.
