Death of a loved one or friend.

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


These 2 poems should be shared with all humans made in the Image of God; who have hidden or damaged emotions that are buried in a Sea of Pain.
I went to a psychologist when I was 50. I said to the counselor that I think there is someone my age in my past when I was in foster care from age 3 to 7 that I would like to now meet again. Then I said, the only thing worse that never being able to see them again, is if they are dead. I started crying profusely.

I had suppressed those subconscious memories of a pretty, little girl for 40+ years. For most of my life, I was unaware of her existence, and I would not let anyone take her place.



To Love Again


It is plain to see
She is human like me
Seeing you in the coffin not able to smile and play
I no longer remember a happy day
Her families heartbroken it’s easy to tell
All we know is that it hurts like hell
I loved you so much and I can’t help but cry
For all I remember is a bad goodbye
She was so warm loving and kind
I can’t help but feel that I am emotionally blind
No longer do I see all of God’s beauty around me
Only able to focus on the ugly I see
She wasn’t perfect I know quite well
God gave us each other I am happy to tell
Our hearts are melted together and it’s easy to see why
Our love will never die
You had no control over when you would go
But this I know you loved me so
May I dream about you and me
And how things used to be
For you are special to me
And always will be
O God how can I love like that again
To not do so would be a sin

To Remember the Good and the Bad


Pain is so real and it’s easy to see
It all happens to you and me
I know we are born to die
But at such a young age I don’t understand why
The pain is so great and my joy is so small
I long to see her but I don’t know where to call
She was so pretty and I don’t mean to boast
Of all other boys she loved me the most
Her hair was so long and I couldn’t help but stare
For I loved to get lost in her pretty blond hair
We were so young and didn’t understand
God would allow a change that we had not planned
She lives in my heart I am happy to say
Always there no matter what I think or pray
I love you and you love me
That’s the way it should be
I am so tired of hiding from you
Not really sure what I should do
Lord Emmanuel help me I pray
For I long to love her again someday
As I look back to those days
I stop and take the time to give praise
Thank you, God, for giving to me
A little girl so special you see
I need to remember the good and the bad
This is how I will overcome feeling so sad

Death of a loved one or friend


All of us will miss someone! We should never forget the pain and the pleasure of loving and being loved! Humans tend to be fearful to take chances on loving again, and we selectively block-out the naked truth that can give us emotional balance and healing in remembering the good and bad in our past, present or future relationships.
Some parts of these two poems are very melancholy. If your past or present memories are still buried in a sea of pain, then contact a counselor, friend or loved one and deal with your issues.
I have gotten to the point where none of these verses makes me cry, simply because I confronted my past and dealt with it.
