They say there is no greater pain~ no loss that can compare… the torment when you lose a child - no
human heart can bear.
No one can just imagine… No one can comprehend ~ Unless they
lose their own child and, then… They’ll understand.
You’ll never really breathe as strong~
Your heart will bear a scar… No words can speak the sorrow, and it changes ‘who’ you are.
I know my life has meaning~ I try to live each day, I start my morning with your love… and the…
begin to pray.
For all of you who’ve lost a child… please know I feel your pain~ and when we see our children;
We’ll be ourselves ‘again’.
Love always mom
