Love is an amazing thing. You can fall in love with anyone. Love is an amazing feeling. It feels like there are millions of butterflies.
Been an addict since I was 14. Started out just drinking, now almost 40. Addicted to the worst, heroin. Stepdad was addicted to crack. Remember saying that won't be me. Now look at me. Tried many of times to get clean. By the 3rd day I can't take the sickness. Lost all my best friends, wish I was with them! God bless all who is struggling! Congrats to the ones who are lucky enough to get clean! Never come back to this side. May the Lord come to take me home, sooner than later!
I'm so sorry for your loss, and thank you for sharing and have the strength to write this. I have lost my 8-month-old unborn son and the pain is with me every day.
At least you spent 14 years with him. I've never even seen my maternal grandpa, and my paternal grandpa expired when I was 4.
Terry and I had previously been in abusive marriages. We tried to settle with the fact that we would never meet our soulmate! But then it happened in 2013 at ages 51 and 61. Our chaplain said it would last because of our obvious love for each other. We held hands and smiled all the time. We went everywhere together. I sat in the center seat of the truck because we couldn't stand to be apart. We laughed until our abdomen would hurt! We noticed that we were warming the hearts of others just by being in love. Only 5 years together, but they were 5 years of honeymoon. Three years into our marriage the doctor said, "I am sorry you have stage IV cancer." We were angry that we were being cheated out of MANY years of love and memories. We cried. My gladiator put up a strong fight until his very last day August 1, 2018. I love and miss you so much, Terry! Thank you for the memories and your unconditional love. I hope you're listening to me talking to you every day. I'll be home with you someday baby.
I really miss my kids. It just hit home. The guardians I thought were my friends keep my two and four year old boys from me.
This poem truly spoke to me. It's so accurate on so many levels. Life has been hard, and I've had to grow up fast. I've had to be strong and show no panic so my mother would think everything was okay. I've always been the person to look after others, always being there for them, always comforting their pain. I've been crying in the dark for some time now. I cannot show weakness or break down. I may be wrong or have to face this one day, but until then I shall continue to wear a mask and show no pain.
There is a huge, gaping hole in my heart. I feel lost and empty. I cared for my disabled son for 38 years. He was cruelly taken from us within 24 hours after a 9 year life-threatening condition. I am now alone with my grief. We still have to say goodbye to him again next week, I don't know how I will cope with that day. He was unique; he laughed when he should have cried. He hid his pain so well; he smiled through to see others weren't hurting as he was. He was my world, and my love for him will never fade. I am so honoured to have had such a special person in my life, but I so wish he was still here by my side, just to be able to touch and hold him one more time, to tell him just how much he will be missed, as he never woke up from the night before. This is also my second son I have lost, losing my first at birth. How does one cope with this again?
I've come across this poem several times. It really says a lot. When my fiancee died in 2003 I was devastated and it took me 2 years to really recover. The following book was a great help and may be helpful to others who have lost a dear loved one. It's by Linda Feinberg. It's called I'm Grieving As Fast As I Can. She goes through all the emotions we experience after the death of someone close to us.
This poem is really touching. It got me right in the heart because it also shows what I've been going through. I'm in a world full of depression and sadness, alone and broken-hearted. You're alive, but you're dead at the same time. This poem is really sad and awesome. Your story touches me right in the heart, and I'm so, so sorry for what you have been going through. The world of depression is really dark. I've been living in that world for 6 years, and it's really painful.
