Two Reasons I Cry


Published: February 2006

Two reasons I cry
My moms gone
My daddy's gone
And I'm all alone
The thought stays
And goes on day after day

Daddy I miss you
It's hard to cope with my life
Didn't want to go on without you

I still can't understand
Why can't you be here with your little man?
Why did you have to leave me?
I wish I could ease the pain myself

Momma when you left
It felt like my soul had gone
I still remember the day
You went away
I had nothing to say

I had no doubtin' you
Everyone knew
I almost gave my life just so I could be with you

I miss you so
No one could ever know
And I'm lost feeling so alone

Those are the two reasons I cry
So if you ask me why?
I'm gonna tell you
I don't know what to do

..... And I'm so alone

Me too. I lost my lovely mum and dad. I miss them too much. Sometimes I have no feeling towards what's happened to me, but I know I'm not happy at all. No one can replace your parents: their love, their attention, their care, their smiles, their encouragement, but I know they are in a good place where there is pain or suffering. Rest in peace.

When I was just 3 years old, my father and mother died. Father died due to an accident, and mother died from cancer. I cannot remember their faces. I feel very disappointed that I can’t feel my mom and day. Now I’m 28 years old. Now at the stage everyone is happy and getting married, but I don’t have any solid back. All relationships are like a weak thread. I feel so unlucky that I have not had the priceless love and motivation of parents.

Year 2015 I will remember. My parents separated when I was a young as I am now 55, they remained friends throughout the years. In January mother had a bad fall and never regained her strength. Father had been taking dialysis 3 times a week since 2007, first prostate cancer, then lung cancer ,and last a mass spot on his brain. July mother had a stroke that hospitalized her, then Pneumonia. Came home for 10 days and returned to the hospital where she was taken due to Sepsis. September 30th I lost mother, on October 19th lost father. I never dreamed of losing parents together. It is funny how life takes people down different paths but return them to each other after years has passed. They are together again and I am alone. It is good knowing they are together again and looking down. If you have parents on earth, spend time with them and tell them everything before it is too late. I would give anything for one more day. R.I.P. Mama & Daddy

I lost my parents 26 days apart back in February and March of 2013. I think of them both 5, 10, 50 times a day still. I want them back as well, so I know what you are going through. I feel sad for you. It has been so difficult for me even though I'm aware that they both lived long lives and everyone has to die sometime. Mom was 85 and dad was 86. I turned 59 yesterday and have 2 kids of my own and a 14 year old granddaughter, but when I sit alone and think...I can't help but feel like a little kid that just wants his mom and dad back. GOD, I miss them so much.

The only words of wisdom I can say is that is does get easier. That sad feeling never ever goes away, mind you, but it does get easier. I hope this helps you a little. Just know that they are safe with GOD and YOU WILL see them again.

My name is Jaspreet Singh. I lost both of my parents. I miss them too much. Now I am alone. I want my mom and daddy back. I was 5 years old when my mummy died and I was 8 years old when my father died. I missed my father too much. My father loved me very much. Today I am missing them very much. I sometimes thinks why me? Why did this happen to me before others. I cry when I miss them. God should give my mummy and daddy back to me because I can't live. Now it's very difficult to get this pain again and again. I want to say mummy and daddy to someone like other children do. There is no life without parents. I don't like this. I sometimes say to God why did you give me this kind of life. I would love to become an animal instead of this human being life.
