To Martie With Love

Grief comes in waves
Devastation lands as a hurricane
We Irish know how to grieve best
Long & hard
Know that in the coming days and weeks
Your clan is here
We Irish have our clan
It may not be pretty but we have it and it has us
Loss brings out the best and worst in us
May you find peace in the best and knowing in the worst
May your head rest while your heart cries
May your shoulders relax while they are held
May you take comfort in your clan
And through this realize how deep and wide it is
