An anniversary

Especially for parents whose sons or daughters died by suicide.

An anniversary

Postby cmarie » Sat Aug 30, 2014 7:38 pm

It's the fourth anniversary of Liam leaving the planet. I miss him.

I wonder if there will ever be a time
When he can just be with me?

When I am enjoying a moment in time
A sunset, a 2 year old being adorable, just a moment...any moment
That I want to share with him

Will there ever be a day
When I don't feel the pain ?
the tightening of my chest,
the constricting of my throat
or the painful pricking of the tears that want to come,

Will there ever come a day that he can just be with me?

Who would you be at 20? What kind of man would you be? Kind and caring I know. But would you still have your sharp wit, your view of the world that always gave me pause for thought?

Oh dear boy, I miss you so. And I say it no where but here and in my heart.
I'll love you forever,
I'll like you for always.
As long as I'm living,
My baby you'll be.

I hope so, cmarie, I hope there will come that time when we share those moments without the pain. I feel the same. The anniversary was hard this year.

Hello cmarie, hello cali, dear dear people to my heart..and dear boys to my heart, too.

cmarie, I want to let you know that I am thinking of you. I know you miss Liam. I will always listen to you. I know Liam without knowing him. I will drink up any version of your loss....any rugged or poignant moment you care to share. Over time, your responses to the broken hearts here have been beautiful - arenas where I have not been game to tread, you have taken in your stride.

cali....I am a little all over the place....I have missed your son's anniversary. I'm sorry to not have been in touch, that I was unaware. I acknowledge that it was a hard time this year, to feel the loss of your boy. Your words of comfort and support make me a very still, awed witness. I have read much of late about the loss of an only child. Now that grief is a constant, containable, I am able to better see this...I am speechless in type....but this is not the end of it.

Oh I wish.

Please take care. Liam, you have some dreams to visit.

The beauty of this forum. Just a few words and other knowing hearts embrace and understand.
Thank you both.
I'll love you forever,
I'll like you for always.
As long as I'm living,
My baby you'll be.

Thank you cmarie for sharing Liam with us, I wish I had the talent of Robert Burns to say something that would ease your road but I don't. I can only say that I'm thinking of you and Liam and I will say a prayer today for you both.
Love Never Dies.
