we said our love was everlasting
but now your gone
i cant touch you
i cant kiss you

my love for you is everlasting
i can feel you
i can talk to you

our love is everlasting

Suicidal thoughts

I was asked a very important question about suicide and people wanting to take their life so I thought I would expand on that here. I was asked “What would you say to a person if they were considering suicide, now that you know how it hurts? ”

Many Shades of Loss

There are many shades and depths of loss, whether it is a friend, relative or acquaintance. When Tim was a teenager, his best friend, Jake, was killed in a freak car accident. Every year, Tim would go out to Jakes grave on Jakes birthday. He would sit beside it and talk with his friend.

Suicide, Our Children and Grief

It's been over 4 months now that Tim decided to leave this world. The moment I saw him, I changed. I changed so drastically, I don't remember who I once was. I will never walk in that person's skin again. They no longer exist. Not that there isn't some basic personality left, only that preconceived Ideas, thoughts, what I believed, changed the night I found Tim dead.

January 1970

 

Just wonder Why

A part of me is gone and I can never get it back.

When you left me here my whole world turned black.

All I have now are the memories we share.

The tears that fall are to let you know I care.

It's the Shame

I love talking about my son David. He died in 2009 on the football practice field at the age of 10.

To Casey From Dad On Her First "Angel-Versary" January 2009

Dear Casey – Today I flipped the page on your angel-versary calendar from one to two. People say it gets better with time. It doesn’t. This year was harder than last because I feel you slipping that much further away. I feel like all I can do is lie in bed and stare at the wall. I move very slowly. I have to work harder to cement your memory into my brain.

I WILL ROAM

I cry myself to sleep

Behind closed doors I weep

But I make it day by day

God you have showed me the way

I feel the pain, hurt & sorrow

Because of You, I live for tomorrow
