To The Group from Terry at Grieving Parents
You sit there in the darkness
You feel so all alone.
You suffer in your sadness.
Your house is not a home.
You call out in the night
"Just let me see your face!"
Hold on to a memory in your mind
A very sacred place.
The darkness is surrounding you.
On both the inside and the out.
All alone in this darkness
You feel that you must shout:
"I'm here. I'm all alone.
"I need your help. I need a hug"
"I'm dying on the inside
"The pain of a mother's love."
Most mother's take for granted
The precious gift they have
Wishing they weren't parents
Especially when their child is bad.
Above this group of parents
Is a different kind of crowd
Of mom's and dad's who've lost a child
And cannot shout out loud:
"I need your help. I'm all alone
"No memories to share
"I'm here. I'm reaching out to you.
"Please show me that you care."
It's your future that you lose
Your past and present too
Losing a child changes
Every thing you say and do.
I feel much more compassion
Mostly for new angel friends.
People from all over Earth, who
Listen while I tell again.
The story of my angel
No matter how many times told
They listen and reply to me
My feelings never get old.
They are always here to help me
And stand right by my side.
They are always there to comfort me
In them my feelings I confide
Each day is a new journey in grief,
Never knowing what will come
Some days are happy, Some are painful
Some horrible and then there are some---
Days when darkness surround you,
And you really must just shout:
"I lost my child, I can't help but cry,
"And I must just GET IT OUT!!!"
Just post and look around you
For always we will be here
There is no need to be all alone
We'll be here for you, dear,
Although our names may change
And at times there may be few,
Know there is always someone out there
Willing to listen and share with you.
Through good days and all the bad
To my loving angel friends I've met
For all the comfort, love, and hugs
Received and sent Thanks to the internet.
