Understanding A Tradegy

Updated on June 13, 2011

Shock And Then Sadness

There is a loss that I can't explain

No words or feelings seem to help

When someone we love is gone

Where do we find peace ?

When their time with us has been cut short unexpectedly

How do we move on and not suffer the pain we feel ?

By remembering their love

Like a crystal clear mountain stream where all the fish go

Then we hold them close

Knowing what we had is never gone

It has just changed like a season from summer to winter

When we see all the beauty that we love lost

Only to return again in another way for so many others to enjoy

We do not know how many lives our loved ones have touched

Losing them we realize how much we were blessed

Understanding that we had no control

We seek answers to the questions that we will always ask

There are some answers we are not suppose to know

It is not for us to figure out

We are here to live our life and enjoy all the happiness that we bring to so many others

Constantly without a thought

It is a time we will always remember

When all beauty explodes

There is no way to put it on hold

It just is

So no matter how hard we try

We can never hit pause

Life is a series of stop and go's

For if we don't do everything that we want to

It wouldn't be living the life that we have learned to love

We love as we go

Look around us and find the new joys that will pop up like Spring

Because our number might be the next number called

It is in our heart all the greif , pain and suffering we feel

Comes from the same heart that we find forgiveness,love,affection and relief

You will know when the time is right

Because you once again will find a way to sparkle in the light

      Joy56 You feel like the steps forward are horrible without the person you love.There is no way to change the circumstances.I have recently seen lives of friends that I care for torn apart because of a fatal car accident.I am having a tough time seeing the good in such a tradegy.When it didn't have to happen if someone hadn't done such a foolish thing as drink and drive.Everywhere you look you see reminders don't drink and drive.When will people finally learn?Very nice people have been hurt in so many ways it is hard to imagine life back to normal.Thank you for your wonderful comment.Leni Sands loss is so hard to comprehend in life.It touches so may people in so many ways.I can pray for that in time the wounds will heal.Life will go on and people learn to love each other more.Thank you so much for reading.
