It will be one year, Sept.5th, that my Phill has been gone. My husband of 34 yrs,"My Man", my friend, my love, my everything. I heard this song by Jewel and I wanted to share the beautiful lyrics with you.

Hole in my Heart

September sad and softly
Leaves are starting to fall
I recall, last time you were here
Your laughter a melody that lingers still
There's a hole in my heart
and I’ll carry it wherever I go
Like a treasure that travels
with me down every road
There's this longing lonesome ending
kind of bitter, kind of sweet
There's a hole in my heart
in the shape of you
Time steals so swiftly
Children having children of their own
and around life's merry-go round goes
and there you are wanting what you cannot hold
Even though my heart aches
There's a smile on my face
Just like a window to heaven
There's a light shining through
This hole in my heart
and so I carry it wherever I go
Like a treasure that travels
There's this longing lonesome ending
kind of bitter, kind of sweet
There's a hole in my heart
There's a hole in my heart
There's a hole in my heart
in the shape of you

Thank you Connie H for sharing this with us. Wow, I like the ending. Now I will know the hole in my heart is in the shape of LouAnn. My wedding aniversary is the 29th of Sept. It will be the 2nd one without her. Will be there with you for yours. Hugs to all. Hugs are good.
WOW, how true I haven't heard, it but I don't listen much to music, but the words are right on.I think I'll have to get my nephew tp get it on the puter so I can hear it thank you.
C onnie, that is beautiful! We all have a hole in our hearts and this shows it. I will be thinking of you On Sept.5th, these days are not good for us, but try and think positive. I'm here for you!
Connie,

These are great lyrics and they are so fitting for the way we all feel. Thank you for sharing.

The line that sticks our for me is "children having children of their own"...our middle daughter recently had a baby, Lilyanna Tommi, and it hurts so much that Tom is not here to share in the joy of this little blessing. Not only is he missing out on playing Grandpa, but Lily is missing out on a really great Grandpa who would have loved her to pieces and been the best playmate.

There is a huge hole in all our hearts for sure.

I'll be thinking of you in the coming days as you go through this milestone. Take care and wrap yourself in all the memories the two of you made, they will carry you through.
Beautiful lyrics! Thank you so much for sharing. My Douglas died in July 2009 and I had his service in September 2009. In a few weeks I will let his ashes go at Mt. Baker, in WA state. That is home for us! September -- a month of memories and yes, a hole in my heart. Again, thank you for sharing -- it helped me to understand things a little better.

In peace,

Brigitte
Connie, I thought of you yesterday, the 5th and I know how you feel, I went through the first anniversary the 5th of August, and yesterday was 13 months, it was a tougher day than the anniversary, if that is possible. Please let me know what you did and how you are. Love you!
Dear Connie H.
I just wanted to say I hope you got through last Sunday ok. I know how difficult all these days, that are only special to us, can be. My husband would have been 62 on the 16th. and there have been other days past and other days coming up that will bring back memories. Personally, just for me, I have a love/hate relationship with memories because I don't care to remember when everything was good and when my husband was well as it hurts too much right now. But, you are in my thoughts and prayers and I hope you get through each day. ((((Hugs)))) to you.
God bless,
Suzanne
CONNIE H. , JUST WOULD LIKE TO SAY I HOPE AND PRAY THAT SEPT. 5TH WENT OK FOR YOU. YOU WERE ABLE TO GET THROUGH IT AND GOD HELD YOU CLOSELY AND GAVE YOU THE STRENGTH THAT YOU NEEDED.I THINK GETTING THROUGH THE FIRSTS HAVE TO BE THE HARDEST. I HAVE BEEN THROUGH A COUPLE OF FIRSTS AND HAVE QUITE A FEW MORE TO GO.
Thank you for sharing.
