So well said! One hopes that we can make it go away if we ignore it.

Yep. Been there, done that.
Yeah, me too! It worked for me for six years after my Dad passed but then I wrote “A Special Time With Him” and cried a river! Part of the circle of life I’m not a fan of.
Great haiku. Facinating inage.
I can relate to this. Cards that mean well, but add to the grief.
They add to the grief but give a little hug, too. 🙂

Yes, they do.
I remember receiving cards after my mother died when I was thirty-five and being able to tell which senders had experienced death of a dear loved one. That ‘s how I learned that it is OK to say things that make the grieving one cry.
You are right. And the person will read the cards when ready.
