My heart grieves

They say you’re in a better place;

I know its true

They say you had little pain;

I know its true

They say it was as you wished

I know it’s true

My heart grieves

Not for you

It grieves

For me

We lost dad on 26th November 2020. I know he is in a better place and I know he must be happy for he is finally with mum, after fourteen long years. The beauty of dad was that he never once showed us or told us he missed mum. He was there for us – me, my children and my sister till the end.

    While I’m sorry for your loss, Smitha, I’m happy for you that you had a father who loved you well. I wish you peace in your new reality without him.

    I am so sorry for your loss, Smitha. Losing a parent is a huge tragedy, regardless of how old you are.

    Aw, I lost my mom when I was 39 years old. I had her longer than some people, but it was way too early and affected the rest of my life. My prayers go out to you.

      Lynn I thought after mom I would never cry again because I had lost my best friend. I was 31 then. But the pain and tears came back again with this loss. Thank you for sharing. I completely understand ‘affected the rest of my life.’ Thank you for your prayers🙏
