Allowed to Mourn – May I?

Do we have the right to mourn?
is this a given in our life path
those we love pass
automatically we march
in funeral ceremonies
accepting hugs and sympathy

Then it is over
we go to the business of
dismantling a person’s life
items so important to their heart
to us only junk

We are to go on with our life
remember good moments
moments that made us smile
moments that molded us into us
moments to connect with the one we bid farewell

But what if that process was denied
do we have the right to mourn?
