My dad left before I was even born. However, he said when I was younger he tried to visit and talk to me. I don't know whether to believe him or not. I have visited him multiple times, and although I want to hate him, I can't, because he is my dad. My dad is now in federal prison and we talk. We send letters and make phone calls. It sucks because I feel like he was never there for me as a child or a teen but yet I'm here for him as just a teen myself. I don't know why I'm still here with him. Out of his three children, me being the first, I was the one who didn't get attention or love from him, and yet I am the only one who is suffering to see him. I guess I'm just searching for a way to have my dad in my life for once. It sucks because I am suffering for his decisions, and it hurts so much. I can't do anything about it but cry and wonder why I was put in this position.

This poem was wonderful. I read this to my BFF, and the next day something came back to me.

All alone in the black abyss, tell me how it's led to this. I keep on smiling day by day, hoping suddenly the pain will go away. With bloodshot eyes, I turn to see you with someone that could've potentially been me. When will this all end and go away? I am still consumed in this black abyss day...by day.

I, too, lost my sister to chronic asthma. She had stopped breathing on her way to the ER, Causing her heart to go into cardiac arrest. She was without oxygen for 18 minutes before they revived her. Two days later on January 23, 2017, she was declared brain dead. She was only 38. I feel your pain, and you will be in my prayers. Her name was Toni, and she leaves behind 3 boys.

Now that you've left me,
The one that I need,
You walked out of my life.
You made my heart bleed

You were my diamond
My lover, my life.
I though our future was together
when I made you my wife.

Don't let it be over.
Please come back to me.
I'll make you happy.
Return to me and see.

I found out I was pregnant with our 6th child very early on, the day my period was due. We had been trying for a boy. At 12 weeks, I found out through chromosome testing that this would be our 6th daughter. We laughed at our luck.

Our two oldest daughters are adopted due to the fact that I couldn't get pregnant for many years. In fact, it took 12 years of trying before I conceived our first biological child. I had 2 more babies in such a short time that they are referred to as "Irish triplets." We always wanted a large family, and we're thrilled to be having another baby. The night before my last appointment, we chose the name Ruby.

The next day, I had a doctor visit. He couldn't find the heartbeat. An ultrasound revealed that the baby was dead. This was 2 days ago, and I'm still carrying her. I'll deliver next week. I'm dying every moment of the day. It's killing me to put on maternity clothes. To know she'll be dead when I meet her. It's the worst pain I've ever felt.

Hi Cindy,
I just lost my sister on Jan 23. She was my best friend, and I adored her. She also had COPD and went into cardiac arrest that ended up with brain damage. Oh, how I didn't want them to turn off the machines! I talked to her and I sang to her. We were always singing together. It was so hard. I am still having hard days...missing her so much. She loved my boys like they were her own, and they knew they could get away with stuff with her. But they adored her also. She was such a huge link to our family. So Cindy, I say this: hang in there. WE both have memories of our beautiful sisters. Loved the poem also! They will forever be in our hearts, and we will meet again. <3

This poem really touched my heart. It reminds me of all the tims I have failed as a daughter to my mother. I'm dreadfully sorry for it all. The pain to you must be hard.

I lost a sister in February of last year. Her one year anniversary is on the 27th of this month, and I can tell you it's not easy. Every single day I live with the memory of the last 48 hours I spent with her in the hospital. It's like a film being played over and over in my head. Wish it didn't have to be this way. I miss and love you, sis.
