Someday soon

Monday 30th May

Someday soon, I know there’ll be
A few more smiles than tears.
It’s what people keep telling me
But I know it’ll probably be years.

A few more years for the pain lessen
The hurt in my heart to ease.
A little time to end the depression
But I know there’s no guarantees.

I’m trying hard to remember you
And all the happy times we had.
The laughter and the good times too
So many memories to make me glad.

I treasure each and every moment
I remember your individuality.
Fun, adventures and enchantment
Such a kind and caring personality.

Love you forever
To the moon and back
Beloved Angel son.

Sunday 29th May

Time passes, slowly
Seconds, minutes, hours
Days, weeks, months.

Actually, it’s been
Over a year
Since you left us.

Four hundred
And forty four days,
To be exact.

And yet it seems
Like only yesterday
You were here.

But you’re not here
You’re there
Flying with Angel wings.

And I miss you
Every single day
I always will.

But I’ll keep on
Loving you
With all my heart.

I’ll remember you
And talk of you
Until I see you again.

My darling son
Precious young man
Now in heaven.

Saturday 28th May

I’m becoming old.
A privilege
Not afforded to you.

Today, I’m twice as old
As you were
When you passed away.

I’ll keep on keeping on
You will be
Forever young.

Today it’s my birthday
I’m  2^2(2^4 – 2^0)
Years old.

Love you my Angel
Precious son
Dearest darling one.

Thursday 26th May

You were here
And we loved you
Unconditionally.

Now you’ve gone
Our hearts are
Irreparably broken.

That you were here
Means our hearts
Overflow with love.

Such a legacy
Of an amazing life
Shared with us all.

Love you forever
Sweetheart
Dearest Angel son.

(It’s been
Sixty three weeks
Since that evening.)

Wednesday 25th May

Flying high my sweetheart
Leaving Angel dust sparkles
Wherever your wings take you.

Sunbeams and shards of light
Finding a way through the leaves
Dappling, dancing with shadows.

In all the sunsets and sunrises
When the stars shine so brightly
That’s when I know you’re there.

Love you forever
My precious Starman
Beloved Angel son.

Tuesday 24th May

Grief
A silence that screams so loudly
A pain that hurts so invisibly
An existence that is so lonely
An emotion that confuses so easily
A realisation that hits so tragically
Grief
An emptiness that can’t be filled
A reality that is forever damaged
A question that can’t be answered
A loss that won’t be replaced
Grief
A missing that will be eternal
A broken heart that can’t be fixed
A future that now will never be
A journey that takes a new path
Grief
A love that is everlasting
A life that won’t be forgotten
An Angel that is my son.

Love you sweetheart.

Monday 23rd May

I write about you……….
because I love you
because I miss you
because I’m proud of you
because I’ll always love you
because we had so much fun
because you meant everything
because you’re here in my heart
because I want to share my grief
because I need to keep remembering
because I’m living with the love you left.

Love you today, tomorrow, forever.
My darling boy.
Angel son.

Down to the sea........

Middle of a moment

Sunday 22nd May

In the middle of a moment
of happiness
Devastating pain waits silently
in the shadows.
Normalcy is turned upside down
in a few fleeting seconds.
A smile and carefree thought
frozen, smashed.

You were here, you’re not here
but you are here.
In a flash of chaos and turmoil
grief overwhelms.
It will always be there constantly
in the background.

Are you adept enough to
throw on the mask?
Did anyone else catch the
heartbreaking instant
When the sparkle turns dull
and tears well up?

It will be those many memories
that ease the sorrow
The remembered smiles and fun
the good times.
So fortunate that you existed
were part of our lives.
Such powerful emotions flow
from intense love.

And we do love you so very much.
We miss you everyday.

Beloved Angel son.
