When we lose someone we love, we expect to feel sad. Even years before their passing if we took a moment to contemplate what life would be like without them, we could have correctly predicted the sadness and...Comments
I cannot tell you how many times I’ve heard…
“I don’t know how you do it.”
“I would go crazy if I were you.”
You were his before you were mine,
Who knew we were on borrowed time.
Like sand through an hour glass,
It wasn't long enough you went too fast.
When I thought of us I saw forever,
That wasn't in Gods plans however.
Five months two weeks six days together,
My time passed with you couldn't have been...
A mother to an Angel, What does that mean?
To live a life with your child never to again be seen.
To have your heart ripped to shreds,

To never be whole again,

To never know the answer why,
To pass the day and only cry.
During the holidays my wife and I were having a discussion about our Being With Grief meetup group. We started this group over a year ago and now have over 60 members.

They know your asking and they care
People can be mean an no filter to their mouth
I love my man he's from the South

He truly loves me for who I am

From the Grieving Heart…
I’m hurting. Something traumatic has occurred. Someone I love is gone, and they’re not coming back. ...Comments
I often wonder where you are
can you hear me from afar
there is nothing to gain from your loss in my eyes
others are quick to judge but they've got a grudge
people don't know the feeling of grief if they have not experienced it
how do they know if they never felt it
for me it was and is life changing
I try not to go back to that day
