I lost both of my parents to death, and I just have this deep void. A sense of being without a parent. It is so hard to explain the void and how I yearn to be in their company again. Realistically, I know they have fallen asleep in death (Eccl 9:5). But in my heart, I yearn to hear their voice.
I know and am aware of the condition of the dead - but my heart sometimes does not want to register the reality of the situation. I want to feel as if I would see them in this life again; hear them in this life again and to love them in this life again.
My heart cries out to see them again. Why did they have to go? Well, we are all imperfect and born into sin and eventually, death becomes a reality to all of us. (Romans 5:12).
