I am so sorry for your loss. I have a similar situation, but it was my dad. He died when I was 3 in a car crash.
Thank you. I am touched by the poem above as I am going through the same thing.
To say I am sorry for your losses seems honest and heartfelt but somewhat hollow. My heart hurts for you. We grow to accept loss is a part of the circle of life, but certain losses make our hearts literally drop within.....never to be the same person we once were. I lost my sister Kim on 3/24/2011. I miss our memories of growing up together and becoming the women we once were. I know Kim would want me to be the best I can and ultimately be happy. At first I was lost knowing that I would forever miss the one person who "got" me. As time has passed, I now embrace the feeling that she will forever be the only person that ever "got" me. No one can compare and no one will ever replace that special bond. I am sending love to you and the promise that time will help. Please take care of your tender heart. Your sister Kim would want that for you, so please don't ever forget that. Thank you for your heartfelt words. Love to you.
I'm a girl who wants a better life with a better dream and understanding.
You are not alone. I, too, fell for someone the same way. We were about to meet, but he refused. I can't force him to. So I let him go. He is free to live his life his way. But I am still stuck at him. I don't think I can like anyone else. I think I was a fool to like someone without meeting him. Anyway, through strength and weakness I shall be better. I have to be. I gotta be. And so do you.
Amelia, trust me, you've found an inspiration that will change the course of your life. Always strive to be the fullest you, nothing more, nothing less. Life is always all about you becoming the you you were meant to be.
I'm 15. I got my first crush in 3rd grade. I still like him. A lot. Over the years I've liked other people too, but never nearly as much as him. My friends have gone through similar things where they thought they loved someone but they didn't like them back. I refuse to say I love him because I believe I neither know enough nor am old enough to say or determine that. Lately though, he's all I think about. And I don't like it. I wish I didn't like him, but I do and it does hurt. I guess what keeps me going is God and stubbornness. At night though I can't sleep and I cry. I used to never cry because nothing was ever emotional enough to make me cry. But not with this. It's been almost 8 years now that I've liked him. He means more than just about anything to me. I would do just about anything to ensure his safety and well-being, but I know that we'll never happen.
I am not okay, but I want to be. I thought everything would be okay by now, but nothing's changed. I feel so empty I wanna cry, but I can't let them see. I wanna scream, but I can't let them hear. Am I selfish for wanting to be loved and accepted?
So I have a crush on this girl, and since I'm not so romantic, I looked up this poem, and hopefully it works.
