Today is the Day You Left Me
Grief and Loss
Today is the day you left me. It is my birthday. The joy of the day has been replaced with deep grieving. My arms are left longing with desire to hold you. My heart aching and numb at the same time. My lips quivering, unable to say your name. What is your name? Who are you? What are your dreams and desires? Where have you gone? More questions, too numerous to mention arise. This is not the ending I imagined. You never saw the love I have for you when looking in my eyes. We never held hands. I never heard your voice. You never sang a song or tasted food. Still you are forever with me. All others have forgotten and think me silly for the value I place on your very short life. You were a part of me no matter how short the time and I can never forget. I felt you move and connected with your soul. We are forever bonded. I will never be the same.
Days, weeks, years go by and that ache to hold you and know you is unfulfilled. That space you hold in me still void. You will never be forgotten. You will always be loved. I am always here for you.
Attached is my original song I wrote shortly after the loss. Writing and writing music helps me through difficult times.
I Hoped Beyond Hope
