10 Ways to Keep a Loved One's Memory Alive

Having lost 4 family members in just over 3 years, my world was turned upside down. I felt an ache in my heart and in my arms. I knew they were still in my heart but I needed something I could physically hold or actually see to comfort me. Although nothing brought them back or took away the pain, having some tangible reminders of them eased the pain.

 

Keys (Poem)

We pass these keys, to cease this journey

Our mind freezes, admiring the ceilings

Concealing these feelings of loss

Seemingly tossed inside a soulless world

Never taught how to sew the hurt

Yes, life is a tough tour

Although, we seek guides to countour

This maze which consumes the brain

FOREVER

Another year without you...

It’s always so depressing

     when I realize how long it’s been 

     since I’ve seen you; 

I Miss You DAD

My heart aches for you dad why did you have to go?
I’m trying to hold back the tears and not let the pain show,
But I’m angry and sad dad, angry because you was took from me,
But mostly sad because in my life you can no longer be.

Coping with the Loss of a Parent

The unspeakable truth

Grief and Courage

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. That number tells us there are a lot of people out there who recognize that they are suffering and grieving for one reason or another. Yet, only a handful of those people actually show up at each meeting.

No One Said a Word

My dad died suddenly during Spring Break my sophomore year of high school. My family had disintegrated a few years before, and he was my world. I was stunned, and numb.

For You

Today I will stand tail and remember all our good times

we have shared...Your life was my life and my life was your life as we were one...

I was your mini me, your daughter, your best friend

i will honor you until the end

Time goes by so fast

making my memories hard to last

I miss you dad, I really do

I have to push every day to get through

Artwork

This is my art work

that I work on everyday.

i also write in a journal 

to make things ok

no matter what's happening 

I must center and pray

That no matter what

tomorrow is a brand new day 

Thank you For listening and here my cries

Nobody knows how I feel inside

only me, which can be frightening at times
