Missing you Still

Posted on June 30, 2012 at 8:31pm 4 Comments

My heart died the day yours stopped beating.

Sitting here alone trying to figure out my life

They call me widow, I call me your wife.

I will never understand why

I am still living and you had to die.

I put on a face for everyone to see

they think I'm okay, only I know that could never be

me here without there without me.

I promise to try, give it all I got

Life is lonely, don't know if people can see

I'm broken…

Picks you up and slams you down, knocking everything loose.

Shattering everything that was sold, secure and good

Never to be the same again.…


I am and I know

I am better now then my previous post. My family chased away my blues.

My daughter came and cooked for us. I walked with my grandchildren from house to house trick or treating. The night was clear and beautiful I could hear laughter and felt God's peace touch me.

I am a widow.

I am grieving.

I am going to get through this.

I know this is the hardest thing I have ever gone through

I know God's with me.

I know one day we will be united in…


Here I go again

Tears on my face but I cannot, will not try to stop them. Knowing I will never hold you again or feel your breath close to me just hurts so bad. Like a silent movie, memories run through my mind. I can't find the off button.

I try to stop wondering why I am still here and you had to die.

Just missing you.

Poppys Girl thank you so much for the kind words. This is so hard and a day to day struggle. I'm so glad you have your boys to lean on when you need or to just be with. Both my boys are so far away and the phone just isn't the same. My world is very lonely also with just me and the dogs alot of tears fall when I'm at home now. I still would rather be here then out in the world that seems to have already forgotten him. I know life has to go on...I just don't like being apart of it.

Poppys Girl, I'm so sorry for the loss that brings you here, but glad you've found us. I hope you'll find the same support and understanding that I have. The groups are especially helpful, because you'll talk to people in situations similar to yours. I hope to see you in chat sometime.
