Just So You Know

I can’t stop grieving just because you believe it is time for me to move on.

I can’t stop hurting just because you do not understand the piercing pain in my heart.

I cannot stop my tears from flowing just because they make you uncomfortable.

My heart is not suddenly mended just because you believe I have grieved long enough.

I will grieve the loss of my loved one for the rest of my life.

Just so you know.
