Members LeanneC Posted October 25, 2013 Members Report Share Posted October 25, 2013 I lost my mother last August. I am 20 years old but my mind feels more mature, I've had to grow up quickly when I lost my mum just before my 19th birthday. I joined this form to help those who are at the early stages of losing a loved one and to help them through each stage. I know for as long as I'll live without my mum I will be grieving. I want to help others. I find photographs of her in my room, one on my bedside cabinet very comforting and I talk to her all the time. I also have a journal I write in usually on days that are the hardest like Christmas, birthdays or just a general bad day. I write as if it is a letter for her to read and I vent out all my feelings and emotions without stopping to think what I'm writing. It's highly recommended, this method helped me a lot. I'm here to listen to other people's stories and engage with them. Much loveLeanne XI wrote a poem the other day too, poems help..A poem I wrote...I have learnt something that people must know, the pain of losing a loved one will never go. Do not expect me to live each day with a smile, you do not know me until you have walked in my mile.Grief is not something that just goes away, this pain I feel, will forever stay.I have learnt that all good things must come to an end,And the pain does not get easier with time my friend.For as long as she is not here,I will mourn for my mother,as her sweet love will never be replaced by another.I know that I must think in happiness and joy,Though life has played me like I'm only a toy.I am stronger but still I am broken, so I wrote this poem, I have now spoken.Every day I know I will always feel this pain, until I meet my darling mother again.
