Day after Day

by Sandy A

Day after Day

With each passing moment, time is slipping away

It goes on and on - day after day

I go to bed each night knowing how the next morning will start

I will awake with a aching sadness deep within my heart

I wonder, How long time will let me live this way?

How long can I keep going on like this day after day?

The pain of your passing hasn’t been lessened by the passage of time

In fact it is rooted deep in my heart and deep in my mind

I have to live wihout you my son, day after day

With each passing moment, time is slipping away

Dearest Angie
by: Sandy A

You asked when will it get easier - for everyone on this horrible journey - grief takes its own path and time. In my own experience I asked the same quetion as you and searched for someone to tell me how long. Its been 14 months today since my son passed. I am in a better place mentally - but in a differnet way. I dont sob and cry daily - but I still feel the pain and the loneliness inside. You are so early in this grief. Just focus on one day at a time. Dont think to far ahead. I have read on this site that grief counseling helps, I didnt take that path, instead I turned to the church and Jesus. I feel this is what is helping me cope. Thats all we can do - you will never be the person you were before - you are forever changed but that doesnt mean that one day you wont smile or laugh or begin to live again. You will find that time moves forward around you. But again this is so early for you. I am so so sorry for your loss and pray that you will find peace in your heart. Just one day at a time Angie.

I look forward to coming to this site each night. I go to work and hide my pain because most people don't understand the deep pain of mourning or just don't care. So I tell everyone i am fine. I lie so well people just believe me. Loosing my mother eleven months ago has been and is my living hell. The pain is so bad i can't even describe it. This is hell on earth for me. People go on I just hibernate. The medications my doctors have given me i don't think are even helping. I don't know how to go on Sunday will be a year that i brought her to the hospital and she died 13 days later of ovarian cancer that was misdiagnosed two years ago. I share my story with so few people because they don't get my pain they think i should be fine by now. I don't want to feel like this and keep reliving all the horrible deals of her sickness and death. I am not doing well and each day gets worse.

I lost my son one month ago today to suicide. He was 13 years old. I loved that child more than myself. In his note, he acknowledged that which gave me a brief moment of comfort. But it didn't last. I still want him back.

My husband and daughter are recovering much better than me. I think it may be different for a mother because I can't seem to move forward. I feel as if I am in a holding pattern and I can't break out of this cycle of grief. I would gladly go with my son, if not for my beautiful daughter.
She is the only reason I keep breathing today.

I wish someone would not only tell you these feelings are normal, but how to make them stop. I hate feeling like this. I want to start to enjoy things again, but I just can't. My son was my world, and had been since the day he was born. I don't know how I am going to get through this.

Until this site, I felt that no one could understand. That everyone was confused as to why I was still having so much trouble accepting this. I don't know how much longer I can cope with this pain. It is tearing me apart.

My only daughter now is about to graduate and move off to college. I feel as if I am losing both children at the same time. I am scared that I will be unable to make it through this.

I understand your poem. I relate to it completely. When will it get easier?

To all who have commented and to all you have read this poem. These words come forth from my deepest moments of despair. I chose to share them to maybe speak for someone out there who cannot express in words what they feel. I dont want to feel these feelings - how agonizing it is to even relate to these words. Yet I do - as many of you do as well,. God Bless all of you - I pray for peace in your heart. Sandy

I am sorry for your loss. I also have the same pain as I lost my beautiful son 12-27-2010. I know the pain is great and you feel as if no one will understand what your going through. You think, cry, bargain, wish and scream about him everyday. People will suggest all different things you must do. I had so many people telling me I just wanted to explode. I finally found this group online and they all seem to know exactly what I was feeling. Write to us everyday if necessary. Know you are loved and you are on your own time schedule. I found writing the angry and mad things that I was feeling down into letters. I have just started on all the great stories we had together.

I am here anytime,

With all my love and support....

This is really beautiful. Straight from the heart. I too go to bed each night knowing what the next day will be like. There is an aching void in our hearts that will never go away.
God Bless.

I feel for you
by: Lost

Reading this makes me feel that you are writing about my life. Will the pain every go away. What I would give to turn back the clock and have her back. I sometimes dream that she will come back that maybe she will be the one to return. I think I am going crazy!!!!!!!
