Have You Ever Felt Pain When Everything Was Numb

I wish that nightmares only happened in dreams
Or lives that were so tightly joined together, didn't burst at the seams
I wish that I could find the solution to the pain of losing a lover
Or the pain of losing a sister or brother
Condolences insult the wounds
Hurt feelings and anger has the family consumed
I wish that I could understand why a life so special could just end
How do you mend a heart shattered into remnants?
How do you heal a mother who's sweet baby is gone?
When you know that baby will never come home?
Grief has transported us to a dark place
Sadness has turned to anger and alliances break. 
What could have been done to save this precious life?
In order to find the answer, we MUST survive. 
The pain of losing a loved one is not temporary
We carry the pain on our sleeve
We cry deeper and harder for every tear they cant see.
It's hard being the one that's left behind
Especially when we were always side by side. 
Its hard holding the burden of missing you
When I know that God must have missed you too.
How could he not?
Your smile lit up my world if not THE world
Now I hide you in my heart 
The first step to healing is to start.

Very nice poem about loss. I wish we could live forever and ever but the earth would probably not be big enough to hold all of us.

"The first step to healing is to start." And it seems like you've started; poetry is very healing. Well done.

This brought me to tears. I've asked these same questions many times, to God, to myself, to the sky. Nicely expressed, you speak for us all. :)
