My two sons, Mark 25.4.76-11.4.2016 Matthew 6.10.77-1.4.2009

At times my heart will sing and at times my heart becomes heavy with the tears that erupt within.

I search to find answers to questions that I have searched for before, only to realize there are no answer, I have to find them myself.

To have lost one son was hard to lose another isn't any harder, the pain only starts again.

The faith I found with Matthew's loss went when I lost Mark.

My mind is muddled, it cannot find sense or reason.

I live second by second.

The only comfort been one day my ashes will be spread with yours. Until that day, I will try my best to live for all three of us.

Will I remember you
by: Maria Kirk

I wrote this on the 28th September 2009. Today over eight years later, I realise I will never forget Matthew. In the same way I know I will never forget Mark either.

Will I remember you

In years to come will I remember you
Will I remember your face, hair, eyes
Will I be able to hear your voice in my head
Will I remember all about you

Can I remember how you used to walk
The way you dressed, the clothes you loved
The books you so liked to read will I remember all these
Or will my memories grow fainter as the years grow older

‘When my mind fades and my eye sight goes
When my hair becomes white like the falling snow
When it’s time for the closing of my days
And you reach out your hands to take me to pastures new
Will I remember it’s you?’
