Forevermore, I pray you have found peace

I’m sorry you were in pain

I’m sorry you were alone

I’m sorry life was a bit cruel

I can only hope you’re no longer in pain

I can’t say I understand why you’re gone

I just know we have to get through no longer having you around

But there is no getting through it

It’s surviving and hoping for resiliency

Today, I cry

Tomorrow, I mourn

Thereafter, I grieve

Forevermore, I pray you have found peace

  1. My most sinceres condolences,
    When I read this post first time I thought you were referring to your pekingese as you mentioned it in your previous post. I didn’t know you lost your husband!

    Be strong, and Blessings for you and your son.

  2. Dear Miriam. Your post about your son trying on his father’s suit for the memorial service was heartbreakingly beautiful. I have been away from the blogs due to serious illness (and now near blindness) for a very long time and am just getting caught up to realize your loss. It feels wrong somehow – immoral actually – to click the “like” button on your posts of grief, of grieving, of righteous anger. May his memory be a blessing to you and your son. Be gentle to yourselves and let the waves come and recede in turn, as they will. Babsje
