6/11 - Comforting Moment - It's Only Words...

It's only words
and words are all I have
to take your ache away.

The Bee Gees (modified)
I'm so sorry.

I wish you comfort.

I hope things will be good.

I wish this
hadn't happened to you.

Words can provide a source of solace, hope, comfort and reassurance--emotions much needed during the grieving process. Words that are written or spoken, help us to realize that we are not alone in our feelings of grief or desolation.

Writing down words is a powerful way of dealing with grief that has been utilized since ancient times. Often the written words can often be more effective than spoken condolences at touching the part of a person's heart which is grieving.
