The pain of death  / Jean (Mom)

The pain of death is not with those who have passed on.  It live in the hearts of thoese who remain behind. 

 An unbearable ache that grows with each empty day.  Days without our children:comforting them holding them drying their tears and sharing their laughter.

Our children have passed into a place of calmness comfort and peace. 

 But for us who remain we are embarking on a lonely journey a sad and tearful voyage to which we see no end.

Many will travel this mournful journey yet along our path we will find new friends compassionate love and understanding. 

 We will mutually share out pain and gain strength as we move through this journey and learn to accept that life does more forward. 

I know we will alway live with this pain but will the hurt will lessen as we continue this journey? 

 I like to think that I can go on because my child is always with me always in my heart.

I am comforted by the pictures in my mind that voice that only I hear if only I could reach out and hold my sweet child again.

This pain is not benevolent; It has ravaged my very being it has fractured my spirit and devasted my soul.

I pray for a gently respite from this pain for tender moments of grace and beauty.  When I can be joyfully immersed in precious memories of my child....

And find solace.

What my child has taught me.

I've learned that you can keep going long after you think you can't.

I've learned that learning to forgive takes a lot of practice.

I've learned that friends can become strangers and strangers can become friends.

I've learned that ignorance isn't an excuse for the lack of compassion.

I've learned that some people with never ever- get it.

I've learned that the communit of sorrow is the stongest of all.

I've learned that no matter how bad your heart is broken the world doesn't stop for your grief.

I've learned that your life can be changed in a matter of minutes.

I've learned that the people you care most about in life are taken

from your too soon.

I've learned that you should always leave loved ones with loving words it may be the last time you see them.

I've learned that love isn't measured by the amount of time you have with someone.

I've learned that some sorrow is so deep that it has no words.  But so is love.

The pain of death  / Jean (Mother)

I pray you"ll be our eyes and watch us where we go.

And help us to be wise in times when we don't know.

Let this be our prayer when we lose out way.

Lead us to a place guide  us with your grace

To a place where we"ll be safe.

I pray we'll find your light

and hold it in our hearts

when stars go our each night

remind us where you are.

Let this be our prayer

when shadows fill our day

 guide us with your grace.

Sorrow In My Soul  / Jean (Mom)

The world no longer listens...

to the sorrow in my soul

As if I should be better

Should live with some control

It's not a simple sorrow...

When you've lost your special child'

There is no simple answer...

No living in denial

After months have passed on by...

The world thinks I am fine

As if I should be over it...

That I should be resigned

Inside I am still grieving

Alone I still do cry

Since they think I'm over it....

On me I do rely

I make it rhrough each day...

but as night begins to fall

My heart reminds me often....

I'm not over it at all

So as I sit in silence

It's you I'm thinking of

While the world thinks I'm much better...

I am missing our sweet love

In loving memory of Joey and his heavenly buddiesl

Your Name  / Jean (Mom)
As I sit here and write this all I have are memories.  Remembering all the good times of the way things used to be.  Never dreaming that one day death would call your name why things happened like it did and it will never be the same.  You are alwys on my mind now living deep inside my heart.  Etched in ink on my ankle because we now are apart.  Rembering my son forever each and every single day wishing things could be defferent every time I kneel to pray. remembering you always is what I have to say.
40 Months today  / Jean (Mom)

Today is 40 months since you are gone to heaven I miss you so much John You are bright smile handsome face I want you this moment please come and see me in my dream.

It seem that nothing matters anymore and yet at the same time I have learned that everything does.  There are millions of people on this earth when one of them dies it matters.

A portion of my heat spirit and dreams and all thoughts of total peace are with my son John. 

The tears I cry are not for me but for the beautiful life that ended far too soon.

Go rest high on the mountain  / Jean (Mom)

I know your life on earth was troubled

and only  you could know  the pain

You  weren't afraid to face the devil

You were no stanger to the rain

 Go rest high on that mountain

Son your work on earth is done

Go to heaven a-shoultin'

Love for the Father and the Son

Oh how we cried the day you left us

We gathered round your grave to grieve

Wish I could see the angels faces

When they hear your sweet voice sing.

For The New Year  / Jean (Mom)

Where there is pain

 let there be softening

where there is bitterness

 let there be acceptance

where there is silence

 let there be communication

 where there is loneliness

let there be friendships

 where there is despair

 let there be hope.

39 moths today  / Jean (Mom)

It's been 39 months since you left to heaven with Jesus. 

The beauty of my Christmas season ended the day you died my pain of facing the season of "joy" shows through the tears I've cried.

People say that "time heals all wounds".....little do they know.  My pain is so real and deep yet no physical wound I show I feel may never heal  wounds.  In your honor I face each day as it comes no matter how sad or isolated I feel.

My precious son John you will forever shine in mywounded heart I'll forever love cherish and remeber you no matter how long we are apart.     

Carved on the palm of my hand  / Jean (Mom)

I will not forget you.  I have carved you on the palm of my hand.  Isaiah 49:15

The truest words of all:  I will not forget you.  You are in my waking thoughts my sweetest memories my dearest dreams. 

I wll not forget you.  Yo have touched my soul opened my eyes changed my very experience of the universe.

I will not forget you.  I see you in the flowers the sunset the sweep of the horizon and all things that stretch to infinity.

I will not forget you.  I have carved you on the palm of my hand.  I carry you with me forever.

No Vacation  / Jean (Mom)

 There is no vacation from your absence.

Every morning I awake I am a bereaved parent.

Every noon I feel the hole in my heart.

Every evening my arms are empty.

My life is busy now but not full.

 My heat is mended but not quite healed.

For the rest of my life every moment will be lived without you.

There is no vacation from your absence.

37 months today  / Jean (Mom)

I miss you John!  37 months memorial day.

You are always here with me you're in my heart and in my mind you're my forever son.  I love you eternity.



Another Day  / Jean (Mom)

I wake each morning to face another day  The tears on my pillow have now dried.  Each morning is just another painful way of remembering you and the day you died.

The mirror shows a face that looks so old my eyes are soar and red from the tears I cried.  There are times when the pain of your death feels so cold I cannot escape this terribe grief no matter when I hide.

My beautiful daughter I miss you more than words can say I cannot get that horrible day out of my mind although I have tried that phone call the terrible news and visions are always in the way.  Grief shows no mercy and takes me on a terrible never-ending ride.

My mask protects and helps me through each challenge I face I promise you this; my endless love for you will never fade away.  Tonight as I rest my head on my pillow I pray you are in a peaceful place I say a prayer and feel thankful that when I wake I can remember you another day.

This poem is so heartfelt I feel exactly same.

It's been 3 years  / Jean (Mom)

This day my heart is heavy with sorrow reminds me of you laid in hospital you looked so peaceful no more pain and suffering.

Since I'm Christiam I know that you are in heaven with Jesus.  Happyness transquility and worshipping and praising God.  You believe and trusted in God. 

I love you forever and cherish your memories.






Someday / Jean (Mom)

Someday it won't hurt so bad and I'll be able to smile again.  Someday the tears won't flow quite as freely whenever I think of what might have been.

Someday the answers to" why and "what if" won't be guite as important.  Someday I'll be able to use what your death has taught me to help others with their grief.

Someday I'll be healed enough to celebrate your life As much as I now dwell on you death.

And someday maybe tomorrow I'll learn to accept the things I cannot change.... But for today...I think I'll just be sad.
