A poem for everyone who knows the loneliness of great loss.

Will you cry with me?

My world is torn apart.

My precious child has passed away,

And shattered my poor heart.

At first the people eased my grief,

They listened and they shared

The stories of my darling son,

And showed how much they cared.

But now that time is streaming by

And days turn into years,

I find myself left more alone

With many bitter tears.

These tears should serve to soothe my pain

And wash away despair,

But there's so many of them that

The hurt is hard to bear.

I'm someone who has lost so much.

It's hard to carry on

With life, and love, and normalcy

When want of them has gone.

So when you see me crying;

So broken and so sad,

Remember I no longer have

The happy life I had.

Don't try to fix or brush away

What is always with me now.

But take my hand and softly say

"we'll get through this somehow.

I am your friend; I'll share your pain

To help you heal and then

With love and understanding

You will learn to live again."

With much love, Cindy

"Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep."

Romans 12:15

Your poem is beautiful. You are a gifted writer. You spoke my feelings exactly, and I am sure many others.

However, the pain you speak of brought tears to my eyes. I am so sorry for how you are hurting. I wish none of us had to go through this. That we all had our babies back. Cindy, you will get through this in time. In time you will feel again. But for right now you need to grieve the loss of your son and that is perfectly OK. I weep with you, we all do. Your poem speaks to our hearts. You will make it, I promise, and we are all here for you.

Cindy, Maddy could not have said it any better. Your poem brought tears to my eyes and was so heartfelt. You are grieving the loss of your child and it takes a huge amount of time to find your way. We are here for you and we do understand your loss and pain. Take care of yourself and make sure you are eating properly and getting a decent amount of rest. One day at a time is all you can ask of yourself. Your poem is beautiful.

This was beautiful and heart felt. Thank you so much. I find it very hard to cry, even though I know it is there. This helped me. May you find the peace that we are all looking for. HUGS!
