Just a blur


Tuesday 6th December

Last Christmas was just a blur

Everything happened around me

This year it’s much more acute

I’m facing the stark, cold reality.


Shock and numbness have worn off

And sadly, in view for all to see

My broken heart is missing a piece

You’re no longer here with family.


I seem to be reminded every day

How much you enjoyed the holidays

All the lights, glitter and sparkle

You should be here for always.


But all is quiet, no joyful laughter

There’s just a great, big empty space

One vacant chair, waiting for you

To sit down, and take your place.


But we’ll keep talking about you 

And I’ll certainly keep talking to you

Your presence remains everywhere

Our love will help me to get through.


Treasured Angel

Moon and beyond

Alive in our hearts

A precious bond.

  1. Holidays are so hard when missing a loved one! Prayers for you! I know that sometimes starting a new tradition can help. when my friends lost their son the one Christmas following his death they went to the soup kitchen and handed out meals. They continue to do it now. They said how much it helped them to do something to help others. Just an idea.
    Hugs and prayers!

      I have been fundraising for a testicular cancer charity, in honour of my son, as I felt raising awareness is key to reducing the incidence of this awful disease. I feels like I am doing something, albeit small.
