365 days.

I miss you.

I wish that was enough to accurately describe how I feel, but it does not even come close. I don’t just miss you; I feel so much more than a mere longing.

I miss your laugh, your lame jokes, your hugs, your voice, and your presence in my life. I miss your “hi” text in he mornings we weren’t together, the “be there soon” and the hours of time we spent together just talking and sharing our dreams and hopes. I miss you. I miss you. I miss you. I can’t say it…

This amazing guy happens to me, a man who taught me to trust again.  Who made me feel beautiful, special and worth loving and then he died!

I'm so angry. I'm alone, and it doesn't matter what job I have or what I do or what I don't do or what friends I have,  or don’t have; he's not here.

I feel you here.

I feel you here.

Are you really gone?

It's raining, kind of ironic, we buried you today.

I feel you here, 

are you really gone?

My fingers trail along the rose I hold, tears streak my face.

The sunlight breaks through the trees.

I feel you here, 

are you really gone?

I sense your fingers intertwine with mine, warmth over comes my being.

A breeze whistles…

It is helpful.....

It is helpful to be able to talk about the feelings that live within me everyday without feeling like I'm the only one who is experiencing this pain.  

I am at a phase in my life right now where I’m struggling with loneliness, heartache and all consuming numbness.

Every day, I feel a deep sense of disconnection from the world around me and the people I share it with.  The mere fact that I am writing this in the small hours of the morning, deafened by the ear-splitting…

Today marks 1 month since you left

Today marks 1 month since you left us, and things haven't got any easier!!! It still hurts everyday knowing that my love/best friend is gone...

Since you’ve been gone, my world has come to a halt. Food has lost its taste. I hear no rhythm in music. I see no beauty in nature. I can’t eat. I can’t sleep. My heart feels like it’s being weighed down with a thousand stones.…

"Thanks, Jeff. It just hit me really hard, that sense of a lack of coziness, warmth, home. Even the simple pleasures aren't pleasures now. In the past, during the winter, when it would snow and my husband and I would be cuddled up in bed…"

"So sad and so understandable.  I like what you said about how any sense of coziness is gone.  That says so much."
