A poem for my baby

Once I was on top of the world

not knowing how far there was to fall



That in only a moment my world could change

and I could lose it all



My days have gone from kisses and joy

To tears and endless pain



I sit and watch the seconds pass

Until I can hold you close again



My baby girl where did you go

How could you slip away



Mama needs you here with her

To get me through my day



I carry you with me… Continue

grief is real

it has been eight and a half months since my very healthy husband died unexpectedly. everyone here somehow helps me know that what i am going through is what i am supposed to be going through. the coronor that dealt with my husbands death said that grief is real and we have to feel it. we have all had our worlds turned upside down and for most of us that is not what we planned. i have decided that the "one day at a time" theme is a good one because that really is what life is all about no… Continue

a subtle message from beyond

we loved to watch the birds in the back yard; our home in a coldesack of a large neighborhood.



on the morning of his memorial service a male pheasant appeared in the backyard. in eleven years this was a first.



i felt this was a sign that all was ok, and i did some research on pheasants. they are an air totem.



"If air animal totems are catching your attention, you should feel very heartened by their presence. Allow their spirit to boost your confidence, and… Continue

TOO LONG

Since I have had to get you out of your crib as you asked to come in "mama's bed", since we have have had our morning cuddle with our blankets arranged just right, me under my quilt and you with your blankie. Since we have talked about the dog picture on the wall and looked out the window at the trees before going to drag your sisters out of bed. Since I have held your pudgy hand, since we have snuggled on the couch to watch Dora, since we have split a coffee and punky bread, since I have… Continue

Lost In Sorrow

Hi, to everyone. I have been reading about all of you, and I am so sorry for you loss! You see I can relate to each and everyone of you, because it happened to me on March 1, 2010. We received the dreaded knock on the door by serveral officers. I asked the sheriff to please find my son that day, because I had a horrible feeling. When they came to my door, I asked if they had found my son, they said they had, but I could tell by the look on their faces, it was not good. I would not let them tell… Continue

My Anger !

I guess I am angry at myself more then anyone, or the kid that killed my child. It is real bad for me right now. I know it is all in GODS plan and I am perfectly fine with that. But my Daughter is having troubles sleeping and we are 400 miles apart. It is driving me crazy for real that I can't wake up from this nightmare. Life is full of curves, ONE LOVE MARQUE

sorrow

The Pain x2

On Feb. 8, 2010, my 18 year old nephew was shot in the head. We do not know if he took his own life or if the gun went off accidentally. Although, a note was left and only stated, "Grandma and Grandpa I Love You and please never let my little girl forget me". We think he might have changed his mind and the gun went off. The gun was over 30 years old and was known for going off accidentally. My fun, caring, handsome nephew passed away on Feb. 12, 2010. This was the first death we experienced in… Continue

WAS IT SUICIDE? ACCIDENTAL? MURDER?

Am I going crazy? My 28 year old son passed away on November 8 2009 according to the coroner. I believe it was November 7 2009.Regardless my son is gone. The coroner showed up at my house and told me my son hung himself. She did not see this first hand. She made an assumption based on what was told to her. Ther was no investigation,and I was never asked one question by anyone. I have been frozen in time for months. I miss him so much,he was my son, and my best friend. We talked about… Continue

Poem honoring my grandfather 12/13/22 - 04/02/10 (87 y/o)

Grandfather



Grandfather, grand in all his glory and father to many.

He is strong in thought and pure in sight.

He has sung a sweet song and laughed a boisterous laugh.

He has planted the seed and watched it grow to maturity.



Grandfather, veteran of war and veteran of life.

He wears shrapnel of another world and his emotions on his sleeve.

He doesn’t tell of his hardships but of his success.

He loves his wife and adores her… Continue

6 months without you

Yesterday was 6 months since I've seen you. Your 20th birthday is in a few short days. I wish you were here. Dad misses you so much, he still can't function correctly. Everyone is going to get together for a soccer game in your memory, all of your friends, and we even invited Kay, because that's how you would want it. I've been so upside down without you. It seems like its only gotten worse the closer we get to your birthday. Alec even misses you; in his 2 year old mind, you just haven't… Continue
