A collection of poems dealing with death and the process of grief which the author experienced at the loss of her husband of 29 years. His sudden death from a heart attack triggered, first, anguish and despair, followed by a slow acceptance of the loss; and gradually, the return to normal and worthwhile living. Because so many have gone through the profound feelings brought on by grief, the poet wanted to share the written expressions that capture the essence of this painful experience in the hope that the poems would afford some consolation to others going through the labored journey that can eventually lead to personal growth, a second chance at living - a new leafing.
