Forever Silenced

by Sandy A

Forever Silenced -

I am forever silenced -
Not able to speak about my loss
No one wants to hear what I have to say
Keeping my feelings inside
They are harbored in my heart

They are forever silenced -
As day by day passes
Everyone mentions you less and less
I want them to talk about you
But the words they do not speak

You are forever silenced -
I want to hear you say I love you Mom
But those words will never come
I want to hear you laughter and hear you sing
Now it can never be

I am Forever Silenced

forever silenced
by: silver

Thankfully I don't know how you feel. I have buried two grandchildren( 4 mos and 2 1/2) and that was bad enough.I recently lost several members of my family including my husband so I do know how grief eats at us. I also understand what you mean about people not wanting to talk about our loved ones. My baby sister died at 44 eleven yrs ago. No one wanted to talk about her except my mother. I guess their pain was too strong. I felt that if I didn't talk about her it was like she never lived. I had to remember and talk about the way she was.I was 8 yrs old when she was born and being the oldest I took care of her a lot.We were close as adults also.To this day,one of her children doesn't want to talk about her.He still grieves too strongly. I think I can understand in a way because he was with her(he was 12) when she took her last breath.I wish he would talk about her and remember all the good times.I hope you find that someone who will do that for you.GOD BLESS you and give you strength. love and prayers are sent to you

Its so heartbreaking even coming up with the words that I posted. I dont want to be feeling this way but everyday it is the same. I am stuck in this terrible time zone. I come here and read your stories and know that there are people who feel the same way that I do and understand - even though we suffer in silence we know we are not alone. God is always with us - picking us up when we can't stand. If somehow these words help to express you feelings - then I am blessed to be able to provide that. To Carol, Cathy, Gary, Anonymous and all those who read this - God Bless you and give you peace in your heart. Cathy I am saying a prayer for you today on your sons birthday - my sons birthday is in May - he would have been 30. I dont know what I am going to do.

you are so right
by: Cathy

Hi Sandy, it is true everybody moves on and we are the only ones who are stuck right where they left us and went wishing they were back with us or we could hear their voice see their sweet angel smile. All gone forever which is very difficult to accept. some days are a bit ok others are very bad. It is my Angel Brandon's birthday on 16th April and as the day is coming closer i am going crazy. what do i buy for son nothing ,its terrible. I think we will have to go on like this till we meet them once again. I just miss my baby so much it hurts like hell. I understand you and i m going through the same. lets pray for each other

I know I am on many anxiety and panic medications. I was such a strong person and now i am a walking disaster. I don't feel like I am living I am merely existing. Do they think we all feel better because they don't want to talk about how much we are in pain. In some ways it is better that they don't because I often don't want to hear what theu have to you need to move on ...they are out of their suffering....and all that nonsense. I will pray for you do the best u can each day and only what is right for u not what others tell u to do.

I understand
by: Carol,Seans Mom

Sandy, I cry as I read this. It is so true. I can't believe how people stop talking about our children so fast. My son died November 15,2011. My world is a dark and stressful place. I have anxiety and panic all the time. Doesn't anyone even notice? My hansome 24 year old son is not here. Don't they notice? I am so sorry for our loss. It is unbearable. You are not alone. I am right next to you forever silenced!

I know your pain
by: Gary Zigich

Dear Sandy I know the feelings of a great loss I lost my wife dawn in feb 2012 my hart is in pain and I feel like no one understands any thing I am going through,but thier are some people who will listen to what you have to say, it is hard to let go of something you love with all your hart, but the best thing is to talk about it.Thats how we heel,is to vent even if no one is listening you are letting go of what is inside you, this pain takes a long time to get rid of, but it gets easyer to talk about, so try not to hold it all in I will listen to you, if you want to talk my email is Remember god is always listening
