No one likes to address him
No one likes to talk about him
He is just there

He is there in spirit
He is there in thought
He never leaves

She is painful
She is forgiving
But she is never forgetting

Where ever you go
She will be your companion
Whether you like her or not

They are the elephants in the room
A symbol of greif
Yet a symbol of love

You never like them
Never enjoy them
But you learn to cope with them.
