I wear my grief like a security blanket
Without the feel of it to burn my heart
Slip away the last memories of you
And a cold numbness consumes me

So I pull it up around my chin
Waiting for the warmth of time to
Relieve my chill and hope for the day
I can recall you without a tear

I like this poem - I have a friend working through the grief of losing a loved one & I can see her, out on the beach, writing...with this "security blanket" around her. Good image & like the line, "the warmth of time"!
