Compassionate Friends

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 Iíve been angry.
Iíve been hurt and afraid.
At times Iíve fallen,
On my knees and prayed.

ďPlease God give me the strength,
That I need to go on.Ē
Though friends and family help,
I feel an emptiness since my child has gone.

At times Iíve been numb,
And donít know what I feel.
Like I have no emotion,
Like nothing is real.

Until my son died,
I din't know what a ďheartacheĒ was.
But I guess,
Thatís 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 didnít ask how special they were,
Thatís just something you knew.

Thatís why my ďCompassionate FriendsĒ
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 thatís mainly
Why Iíd like to say,

Thank-you for being my ďCompassionate FriendsĒ!
