The Gray



The Gray

By Robert C Price


Sometimes we shield

Memories of the people

We’ve lost along the way


We release the good thoughts

To roam free throughout

Our minds


And hide the bad thoughts

In a safe locked away

Never to be seen again


But those memories are

Just as significant to the

Grieving process


It’s the whole picture

That matters most

Those off-kilter moments


No one wants to

Remember them

In the gray


That in-between of

Heaven and hell

That made you doubt


Made you wonder why

You loved them

Even when you shouldn’t


The typical human

With giant sized flaws

As we all have


Remember all that

They were and

Love their impact

On your life


Never suppress another

Memory for you do a

Disservice to them


We all live

In the gray

Where humanity dwells
