We all have our demons to deal with
Mine has been child loss.
To find our way to some degree of normalcy
We must seek out our pathway to healing.
Healing does not make the hole in your heart fade
Nor does the pain ever go away,
It all becomes tolerable as time passes.
Some are blessed with natural ways of fighting back
Writing is an outlet for some,
Others struggle to find their way.
My grief journey is throwing me onto a new path
I continue to search for direction.
Change is the only means of survival.
I have learned that when you lose someone you love
A part of you is gone… forever.
As you are knocked to your knees with your heart wrenching loss,
another part of you slowly begins a rebirth process.
Your strength gradually builds,
You start to emerge as a changed person.
And so the journey continues.
Each day when I see the sun rise and set I am reminded of a promise for a new beginning.
In Memory of my son, Dustin
Forever 16, Forever Loved and Forever in my Heart
