We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for. To quote from Whitman, “O me! O life!… of the questions of these recurring; of the endless trains of the faithless… of cities filled with the foolish; what good amid these, O me, O life?” Answer. That you are here - that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. That the powerful play *goes on* and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be?
Rest in peace.

Grieving is probably the worst thing to see in any zodiac, but especially with Capricorn’s. We rarely get close to anyone, mostly because we don’t trust or open up. When we do, it’s a major step. When we take that step with you, you’re there for life. When we say we love you, we mean every word and our loyalty and trust is in your hands from then on.
This is why I think it’s hard for us to lose someone and this is why grief hits us hard. When we lose a person that was once so close to us, it’s like you tore a hole somewhere deep inside us. Capricorn’s grieving is similar to a depressed Capricorn only more intense. We tend to fall apart, recluse and distrust more. I think when we lose someone we take it as, “Maybe I shouldn’t get close to anyone…I don’t want to lose someone again.” However, I think our practicality kicks in and we know that those thoughts are just coming out because we’re in pain. Loss and grief is the most hurt a Capricorn can and will probably ever feel.
Needless to say, a Capricorn’s grief never really fades. It’s something that sticks with us, haunts us. We’re very nostalgic and when we see things that remind us of those we’ve lost it’s like sending us back in time. Things get easier and we learn to carry on, but those people are always with us. We carry their memory in everything we do, never letting them fully perish. We keep them alive throughout the rest of our lives.
