She will Never hold his hand again

She will never hear him say her name again

She will never see his boyish smile again

She will never hear him say I love you again

She will never hear him say "it's going to be ok" again

She will always love him, that is certain

She will always be thankful for having him in her life

She will never forget the happiness she felt and shared with him

She will never regret one moment of their lives together

She will always honor his memory and all that he was. He was Love and light in this harsh world. 

She will always remember he loved her, when she didn't love herself

Although She feels like she is drowning in this massive brutal ocean of grief, she somehow has the courage to do it for yet another day. 

Grief has come to sit with her.  She grieves because she loved her person  truly deeply and authentically..for all that he was

She loved, and now she grieves

Thanks Tony,

I appreciate your kind words.  "Coasting through life" for me is correct right now.  Many blurred days, weeks and months so far.

I do have hope, that like you, I too will get to that point where I am participating in new interests.

Thanks for your insight.

I have often heard said, and have often repeated, that we grieve so hard because we loved so deeply.  It isn't easy finding our path alone now, but try to find outlets and think of new things that are interesting to you.  It doesn't have to be something that you all shared, find new things, seek new challenges, Maybe you will hate them and laugh that you even tried, but opening yourself to possibility is part of healing.  This is a very nice blog post, it does dig at where you likely are.  I remember my first year was partially in a fog, partially losing my mind, and partially just going day to day doing what was expected of me but feeling I was coasting through life.  I am now trying to find something different something new to try out.  I am hopeful that I will eventually strike gold and find something that truly is mine and excites me.  But I will never forget the person that helped to get me to this point.

There  will  always  be a dawning.  There will always be  the opportunity  to choose  life  while  we are living.  Memories  remain  forever  but the mind  and heart  have  an inexhaustible amount  of  room  for  new  ideas  and  for more  love to come  into our lives.   For as  long a time  that is  needed grief  will  stay  as an unwelcomed , undesired  guest  but  at the  perfect  time,  the right  time   there  will be  a  dawning...  and  in that  day  whenever  it arrives  living  life  resumes...never  the same but changed  so our hearts  and minds  can  thrive  again having  survived  the  grief  and chosen  to move  forward.
