My heart broken
So deeply
Tiny incisions
They hurt the most

Paper cuts 
The pain lasts longer that way
The loss I feel
Seeping out in the quiet of the harrowing nights

You break your heart everyday
The moment you wake up
And live without her
Now from inside
It does it of its own free will

My heart is crying
Birth cord cut like at birth

My Mum died...

    To "wake up and live without her" must be very hard, Jo. Been there. But let me assure you she will always be in your heart. Nothing can take away the impact she had on your life. I'm so sorry for your loss. God bless you, Carolyn
