Grief and I met after many a day
We were both subdued and mellowed with age
She had lost her sting and aggressiveness
And I, my resistance and bitterness

We sat side by side in total silence
Each lost in our private reminiscence
She of her gains and accumulations
I of my losses and deprivations

We shared a companionable silence
No more tears, tantrums, recrimination
No promises to move on and forget
Just an unavoidable acceptance

Grief and I parted after a short while
Neither uttered adieu nor au revoir
