 Why is it when someone you love dies that you replay years worth of memories in your head in a few hours remembering every word, every look, every emotion you felt and witnessed and yet you crave…Continue

I just wrote this, it's rough but captures how I feel just about now:

For all the smiles and laughter,
You gave me through the years,
The love and tenderness,
Hugs & kisses fierce.
I'm grateful that I had
Those 10 glorious years;
So sad they had to end,
Anguished you're not here.
I lit a candle for you darling,
I've cried a thousand tears,
So merry friggin Christmas
And a miserable new year.

I miss you more and more each day;
The pain will never go away.

You left me here all alone;
And now I have an empty home.

I miss your laugh, I miss your smile;
I miss your sweet face all the while.

Each day I cry and long for you;
I don't know what the hell to do.

Come back to me my sweetest friend,
Can you feel my heart again?

Please come back and make me whole,
Heal my empty, broken soul.

How many times can your heart shatter?
How many pieces can it possibly become?
How many times can it be torn apart?
Before its beat stops its thrum.


A Thousand pieces it breaks into
A million more to come
A thousand pieces shatter again
Since you were called back home.

How many times can your heart shatter?
How many pieces can it possibly become?
How many times can it be torn apart?
Before its beat stops its thrum.

A million pieces, sparkling like glitter
Slowly fall to the ground.
Ash to ash and dust to dust
To you I'm forever bound.

How many times can your heart shatter?
How many pieces can it possibly become?
How many times can it be torn apart?
Before its beat stops its thrum.

Eternity it feels like,
Will pass before I see
Your sweet, loving face
And in your arms I'll be.

So soft a hand you'd say
Held by one so strong.
Now is held by nothing.
Through a life that seems so long.

I know I have my children.
My friends I hold so dear.
But there's no one to stand with me
Through my Golden Years.

I kneel beside your gravesite
And begin to shake my head...
How does a mother cope with
The truth her child is dead ?

But there it is, plain as day
Deeply etched within the stone
My finger moves along the date
You left me here to mourn

A sigh escapes from deep within 
The anguish in my soul
Imploring God for more time with you
His angels from me stole

Yet I know it's all in vain
This wish to have you still
A part of me can't let you go
And probably never will...

I place a rose next to your name
Brush away the errant leaves
Wrap my arms around my legs
And cry into my sleeves

I sing you Happy Birthday
Trying to wipe away the tears
And swallow all my anger
Resenting the missing years

I long to hear your laughter
We would've shared upon this day
And the quiet moments together 
If only you had stayed...

I stand because it's time to leave
Life beckons me far from you
But for me, I don't want to go
I don't want to face the truth...

That you are never coming home
And begin shaking my head
Because I cannot cope with
The fact that you are....

You're too young to be a widow

I never thought that I would be a widow in my forties.  My friends can't relate and feel the need to comment on everything, even if they have no experience with grief.  I know they mean well but only we know what we are going though.See More

Homicide Survivors Group

I'm starting this group in hopes that people who come to oninegriefsupport in the U.S.  can share in their experiences and grief for homicide related deaths. There are tons of support grief services for cancer, alzheimers, loss of children, suicide, ..I could go on. But there are not many support groups for homicide related issues. With the growing gun-related deaths, I thought it would be prudent to create this small sub-group here.I know that grief is very unique and it shouldn't be compared…See More
