Grief

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.

 

Love Never Goes Away

Hey You, it’s me in Heaven
And I’m here to say Hello
I didn’t get to say goodbye
Before I had to go
I want to let you know that...
I am here, just at your side
Just look to your left shoulder

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

Friendship (Poem)

Smooth flows, smooth flows, there’s no place for more foes

Searching for love in the wrong places, we propose to our roads

Share goals, share gold, that’s how deep the love goes

Every week we see ghosts, so many are fake close

Hatred switches sides like basketball teams, straight after half-time

I'm Not the Same Anymore

Some losses change everything. We're not the same people we used to be. How could we be?


From the Grieving Heart:

Grief Attack

The sea is calm and tranquil; the birds soar in the sky. Sun glistening on the waves as the boats are sailing by. A gentle breeze felt on my cheeks as I step into the sand, the view bestowed upon me is looking very grand. A familiar contentment so near and felt within, peacefulness around me seems what today will bring.      

Substance Abuse and Grief

It’s difficult to describe the pain of losing a loved one. It may be one of the hardest experiences of your life, and the grief can linger for weeks. In the days and months following the loss, you might experience concentration difficulties, irritation, sleep problems, loneliness and bouts of extreme sadness.

The Monster Inside Of Me

 

WHEN YOU GET AMBUSHED BY TEARS...

I Don't Know How to Do This

We miss them. We loved them, and we love them still. How do we do this?
