 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....

Eva

When will the ache subside?

A group for people who have lost loved ones with prolonged suffering. For those of us who have seen that the end is coming, and had to watch the ones we love creep toward it.

Does Counselling Really Help?

I’ve not been on here for a while, it’s been so hard just trying to get through the days; keeping myself busy, trying desperately hard not to think about things and often failing miserably. I’m so tired of feeling so shitty all the time. I had my first session with a counsellor today, after feeling initially nervous and not wanting to say much everything came out and I cried like a baby. I feel absolutely drained now and very emotional. So my question is this, does counselling really help or…See More

I lost my daddy to suicide.

My daddy was a us navy veteran who brutually killed himself on September 27, 2017 at the age of 51.My Daddy had become really emotionally sick in recent years. He was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia. Which of course he didn't believe because he thought that was the Va trying to control him. He became really hard to be around as he has these crazy conspiracy theories and he heard and saw things that didn't exist that proved to him he was right. Then he started believing people were out to…See More

I lost my mum in September. She was subject to elderly abuse by my older sister. I dont know where to start from. The anger and rage I have for my elder sister, its not funny. I try to get the vision out of my head, and how she treated my mother. The pain is excruciating that i feel, I need to join my mother. I spent a week in the crises centre. I hope this grief and anger passes.Question: how do I accept or come to terms with the matter.I do have evidence supported by my other siblings. The…See More

Letter to My Nancy #602 one of my daily letters to my lady

I began writing one of these each day, beginning December 2015 to ease my grief and start each day with some hope and joy. The hope and joy would last for awhile and then I would be back in the throes of deep, dark misery. I recommend these emails that are never sent as excellent therapy. I have written 602 of them in the 2 and  a half years since I lost my Nancy. Here is today's letter to Nancy. Letter to My Nancy  602   Sun., Oct 15th, 2017   without youGood Sun afternoon my other half. My…See More
