I have never known a pain
deeper than this loss
watching you fade till little remains
My mind is blank...and I am lost.

I've weathered through the many years
seeking solace in my drink
finding that it just takes more beers
to keep me from the swamp of sorrow
...and the accompanied stink.

My friends and family watched me fade
as I had watched her go
Aren't I the better man, My father made.
I must let my faith allow me to grow.

It's hard to begin
to love again
when thrust into the swamp of sorrow
But I believe
or can at least... conceive,
that there can be a better tomorrow

I can feel your pain, as I have and am going through a similiar grief. I fear you may try to numb that grief with drink, but it will not dull the pain. You must go through it as we all are here. Keep reading my friend as we are heartbroken and feel at times unable to function. There will be good days and bad, such is life and I suppose death. We are all here for you...HH
