When You're Gone

1 Kiss, 1 Love ~

1 Kiss, 1 Love ~

I was online the day after Thanksgiving (that was a difficult and crying day) reaching a emotional low. How will I survive Christmas? I found a song by Avril Lavigne ~ When you're gone. It sums up what how I feel, I'm sure it's how we all feel at times. I've written so much online, emotions overflowing with enough tears to cover the world and still they flow.

I'm lost and alone even though there's people around me, always feeling alone, empty and searching. Where do I go? What do I do? I ask myself Who, What, Where and When? I was viewing a youtube video and it hit me deep and hard but so to the point ~ When your gone ~

**************************************************
I always needed time on my own
I never thought I'd need you there when I cry
And the days feel like years when I'm alone
And the bed where you lie is made up on your side
When you walk away I count the steps that you take
Do you see how much I need you right now?
When you're gone
The pieces of my heart are missing you
When you're gone
The face I came to know is missing too
When you're gone
The words I need to hear to always get me through
The day and make it ok
I miss you
I've never felt this way before
Everything that I do reminds me of you
And the clothes you left, they lie on the floor
And they smell just like you, I love the things that you do
When you walk away I count the steps that you take
Do you see how much I need you right now?
When you're gone
The pieces of my heart are missing you
And when you're gone
The face I came to know is missing too
And when you're gone
The words I need to hear to always get me through
The day and make it ok
I miss you
We were made for each other
Out here forever
I know we were, yeah
And all I ever wanted was for you to know
Everything I'd do, I'd give my heart and soul
I can hardly breathe I need to feel you here with me
When you're gone
The pieces of my heart are missing you
And when you're gone
The face I came to know is missing too
And when you're gone
All the words I need to hear will always get me through
The day and make it ok
I miss you

**************************************************

I miss him so much it hurts beyond my life ~
So Christmas is coming and I'm sure I'll be here again
But I will try to remember again
1 step, 1 breath at a time ~
Thank you for this website ~

When you're gone
by: Jules

What a beautiful song - early on not long after John had passed, I told my grandson, that going to bed at night was the hardest - he downloaded a song for me - it was called "I go to sleep" - by Chrissy Amphlett and The Pretenders, the words said everything I was feeling at that time.

I still listen to it occasionally, but I must get him to download yours for me - I would love to actually hear it sung.

Take care - know we are here for you

The song
by: Barbara

I am glad you posted the words to that song. Kind of strange. Just the other day I heard that song on the radio. I don't remember hearing it before but I couldn't believe how close to home it hit. Thank you for posting it.

Please Grant me strength...
by:

Patricia,

You have the courage to face your fears and loneliness. I cannot even read the lyrics of the song that you posted for fear that it will drag me down into the pit of despair. Today I feel empty but not desperate. And for that I am grateful that makes it an o.k day.

So here is hoping that you have some o.k days where you make it through and for now that will have to be enough. We must all gain some strength as Christmas comes and brings us down that horrible vortex of remembrance and pain.

What is anticipation and what will be I do not know. I would love to sing Que Sera Sera and mean it. Please keep your strength up as you have. You should be proud of your progress, Even if you can't see it we do...

Thank you

This describes exactly how I am feeling. Thank you for posting the words to that song. I haven't figured out how I will survive Christmas, but it really doesn't matter because I will survive; I don't have a choice.
