Bereavement in their death to feel
Whom We have never seen
A Vital Kinsmanship import
Our Soul and theirs — between

For Stranger — Strangers do not mourn
There be Immortal friends
Whom Death see first — 'tis news of this
That paralyze Ourselves

Who, vital only to Our Thought
Such Presence bear away
In dying — 'tis as if Our Souls
Absconded — suddenly


~Emily Dickinson

Wow.

I've been wandering around the internets saying, "there are no words". I was wrong.

Emily Dickinson may not be the best choice for a greeting card, but she sure knew what to say about grief and death.

I knew my career would change, but I never knew guns would be what changed it.
