Grief Joins Me

Grief hides behind my smile
Filling each crease and corner
No gaps between my teeth
Each colored in with pain

How to explain
The smile is real – no fake joy
But it comes at a cost
I get tired of paying

While we are slaying
The dragons of disease
Diagnoses
Limitations looming

Yet you are blooming
I won’t forget
To celebrate each moment
But grief joins me
