Acceptance – Five Stages of Grief

Denial.

How can this be?

Ain’t happening to me!

Anger.

This is not fair –

don’t fucking dare!

Bargain.

God is listening, pray –

I’ll fight all the way!

Sadness.

There’s so much I’ll miss;

it’s hard to reminisce.

Acceptance.

It’s time now to surrender;

I’ve lived life in all its splendour.

I’ve been reading up on dying and grief today and it seems that Acceptance is the final stage, but sadly not everyone manages to reach this.
