I LOOK FOR SIGNS

Grief is such a lonely road that I must walk now you have gone Family and friends are always there but for me my grief I cannot share And when they ask me ‘How am I’ I smile and say ‘Yes I’m okay’ But that’s not true For deep inside is so much pain each day I hide My inner thoughts my physical pain my thoughts of seeing you again I look for signs most every day But are these signs I sometimes see from you to me these signs I see Or am I just imagining these signs are sent from you For if I thought these signs weren’t true my grief well how could I get through Keep sending signs they help me live each day each night they help me through they give me faith they give me life they give me hope that one day we may meet again These signs I pray are real and true they gently take away my pain of living life without you...

Heartfelt hugs, dear Ann. I can not take away your grief, but I hope you know your vulnerability and genuineness shower down comfort on others who have lost. We read this and feel less alone in this harsh world. Your love is so evident. A thousand thank you's for sharing this ~ John

The signs are all over my yard, and I have full belief in each and every one of them. Never stop believing for faeries will die.

Such a real delicate piece Ann, filled with the pain and grief you're feeling but hang in there things will get easier, it may take a while for as an old minister friend always said 'the story isn't finished yet' Will be praying for you to know peace , grace and strength. Hugs and blessings xx Gordon

Your emotional plea is so pure and your grief is so deep, I feel it, across the many miles, in my heart too, Ann. I can't imagine the depth of your pain and sorrow but do I believe the signs are real. May God bless you in your time of anguish. Warmest wishes.. ~Susan

I'm sorry youre not having a good day Ann, I know it will take a long time to get over your loss, People mean well but in reality if they haven't experienced it, they really don't know. One thing I do know, your son would not want you to be sad. He may be gone but he will live on in your heart and in his children. Best wishes. Tom

aww Ann a poem that many can relate to especially saying 'i'm fine' but real friends would reach out to you knowing how you are keeping your grief inside - keep on looking for the comfort these 'signs' give you:-) hugs jan xx
