Taken From Me

I'm sitting here in my room, looking at your picture.
Wondering why you couldn't be a part of my future.
Uncontrollable tears stream down my face,
while my heart beat starts to race.
Asking God why he took you from my life,
it was more painful than stabbing me in the heart with a knife.
I still needed you here
you were the one to make everything so clear.
you are a part of me and I am a part of you
when you died a part of me died too.
I never knew how hard it was to lose someone you love
until the day you went to heaven above.
Even though I can't see,
I know your up there watching over me.
I miss you more and more everyday
and all I can do is pray.
In my heart you shall forever remain.

My 15 year old son were murdered brutally (beheaded) today 17 October 2013. I'm a single mother and he was my best friend, confident and basically my right hand. Why is it that the pain seems to get worse? I cannot get over this and his 6 year old brother still cries a lot about his brother. I just don't know how to handle this pain anymore. Worst part is I have to face court proceedings and I'm honestly not ready to hear all the details about what happed that night.

My son was taken away way too soon. He was only 25 years old. He passed away in his sleep at home of congestive heart failure. Leaving behind a five year old son. The day of his funeral was the day he was supposed to have his heart surgery. My son passed away on Dec 01 2013. Just two days before my birthday. I miss him dearly. No one will be able to fill that hole in my heart.

I just want to say to Denise in Vancouver.
I am so very sorry for your loss. I cannot imagine, nor will I pretend to imagine your pain. Losing a child must be the worst kind of pain there is. 25 years ago I worked with a man (in his 50s) who had just lost his 30 year old son, I will never forget his words to me. He said "Its not right. We're not supposed to bury our children." My heart broke for him that day, just as it's breaking now for you...Praying for you and your family.

This poem touched me. I lost my best friend of 40 years 2 months ago. I am 52 years old and knowing that I have the rest of my life to live without seeing her or hearing her voice again, the pain feels so unbearable at times. I just pray to the Lord for peace and comfort, that's all I can do. If bff's can be soul mates, then she was mine.

My heart still hurts over the loss of my 16 year old son. He was my baby. I thank God he gave us 5 days with him in children's hospital. I prayed hard that God would heal and spare him but it was not to be. This child of mine was so loving and forgiving and my best friend. I feel lost without him. This poem pretty says how I feel.

It is touching and sad and reminds me also when I lost my mother a few years ago. Sometimes it is difficult to overcome such a tragic loss. The best we can do is to try and cope with it. Mother is mother and can't be replaced.

My Dear Husband, It's been almost a year now and that pain that everyone one says "It will get easier in time" it hasn't gotten easier. In fact, it has gotten worse it feels like I have this pain that aches so bad and it's deep down in my soul since you left.
Everyone says "I need to let you go that I'll always have a special place in my heart for you." I don't know how to do that I still love you the same as when you passed away and you have a special place in my heart already. I don't know how to let you go and I don't want anyone else to share my life with. Living without you and not seeing your face and smile or hearing your voice is so hard to do. I've prayed for God to give me strength to move forward and to make things better.
My heart aches to see you every day and I can't wait to see you again. I pray that you are now happy and at peace and in no pain. I pray that you know how much I love you and that now you know God's love and forgiveness.
Love always,
Your Secret Admirer

My daughter Kerri was 25 yrs old when on Dec. 21 2011.
She was taking my grandson to daycare on her way to work. She went off the road and hit a tree and the car caught immediately on fire. There was a fireman driving behind her and by the time he got to the car he was able to break the window, cut the carseat belts and got my grandson out, he tried to get my baby girl out but was too late. My grandson got burned but he now turned 5 years of age in 2012 and is doing great, but I miss my only daughter severely.

I cried with your poem it's exactly how I feel I've lost two son's. One was 14 that was 11 years ago he would be 25 and recently in September 2010 I lost another son he was 20. It has been so hard for me especially this last one, because we had so many conflicts it has been so hard for me to accept and face not being able to say I'm sorry and how much I truly Loved him.

I lost my wonderful Loving husband and friend Christopher Powers on Feb. 9,2012 and every day is hard and I can't seem to pick up the pieces. The poem "Taken from me" says everything I feel and my life has been shattered turned upside down and inside out. We were married 13 years. I miss hearing him tell me he loves me he told me that numerous times in a day. I hear people tell me it will get easier then read those that have lost their spouse for 5 years or more to Me it never gets easier and never will, if you truly love that person And I truly love Christopher & will miss always. Love you always and forever your Loving wife Carol

My uncle died two weeks ago from suicide and when I read this poem I started to cry, thought of him and all the good memories we had together. I felt so hurt when I heard that he was. Out of all the uncles my best one was gone forever. He was like a second father to me. :( I didn't know what to do and how to react, I was confused, lost and I didn't believe he would leave me.

On January 14, 2009. My 17 year old daughter left for school. Later that day she called and ask me could she go to a basketball game. That was the last time I heard or saw her alive. Later that night after calling the police to report her missing. I received that knock at the door to let me know that my child had been murdered. Then poems and stories on this site have really helped me to grieve and feel better about my situation. You see I have a 10 year old daughter, who was only 7 years old at the time of Brittany's death. I had to remain strong for her. My heart would ache so bad because I could not let her see me break down. I would have to beat my chest just to ease some of the pain that I felt. Even now, when I feel pain for the lost of her I have to just shake it off because I feel that if I let go I might not be able to return to sanity.

My sister passed away two years ago and not a day goes by with out me thinking why. She was two months pregnant with her first baby and was about to get married and then on March 3 her life ended and mine I think went with her. My sister meant everything to me. She was more like my mom then my sister. I could go to her for anything and she always gave me her hand she never judged me or asked questions. I just miss her so much and I would give any thing to have her back.

Early this year I lost my god-father. He meant everything to me. I never got to say goodbye. My parents wouldn't allow me to visit him the day before he died.

My sister passed away of suicide in Dec of 07. As I was reading this poem it brought tears to my eyes. There are so many parts that sound like poems my sister and I have wrote. I feel as though you and I were both in the same shoes. I know from experience that that is one of the only ways of loosing someone when you don't know whether to be angry at them, or sad for them. If I am right about the situation I commend you for being stronger than I could have ever been when I went through it.

My Pop just died Friday, December 12, 2008 of Lung Cancer. He was my only grandfather, my other one is my dad's dad and that side of the family has nothing to do with me. My Pop was like a father to me as well as my grandpa. I often find myself in my room looking at his picture and bawling, asking God why. This poem is terrific, and it's very heart-felt.

I love you Poppy, you are my angel!

My mother passed recently. We were both born on Sept. 24. I was born on her 30th birthday and in many ways we were like twins. Never ever apart. Now that she is gone I feel as though I am in shock. I take medications and go to therapy but nothing seems to help. I feel as though my life ended when hers did. I am not sure this will ever change although others tell me it will. Please God I hope it does or I too will die from a broken heart.
