We have been through a lot,
You and I.
And in a blur,
A whole year has gone by.
In my first year,
Since my son has gone,
I have felt many emotions,
And yet felt none.
At times I’ve been angry.
I’ve been hurt and afraid.
At times I’ve fallen,
On my knees and prayed.
“Please God give me the strength,
That I need to go on.”
Though friends and family help,
I feel an emptiness since my child has gone.
At times I’ve been numb,
And don’t know what I feel.
Like I have no emotion,
Like nothing is real.
Until my son died,
I din't know what a “heartache” was.
But I guess,
That’s what losing a child does.
I can see it in all your eyes,
And hear it in your cry.
We hurt the same,
You and I.
I hear one speak of her son,
And another of his daughter too.
You didn’t ask how special they were,
That’s just something you knew.
That’s why my “Compassionate Friends”
Are so special to me.
You all know the pain and heartache,
Yet the joy of the victory,
Of making it to another milestone,
Anniversary, or holiday.
And that’s mainly
Why I’d like to say,
Thank-you for being my “Compassionate Friends”!
