Had a wobble this morning, I’ve taken to trying to write poems about my feelings. It seems to help clear my mind. This is one I’ve just finished.
Another Tough Day
I’m having a tough day today,
I’m feeling so alone right now,
Sitting here wiping my tears away,
Need to face the day, don’t know how.
This morning a beautiful sunrise,
But it didn’t chase away my fear,
The tears still falling from my eyes
I really need you, need to feel you near.
The loneliness is hard to bear,
Some days it seems too much,
A sadness that I’m unable to share,
That would be relieved by just your touch.
But as I look out the sky is blue,
The grey clouds chased away,
I’ll take the sun that’s sent by you,
As a gift to brighten up this darkest day.
Love & Miss you forever xxx🧡
This is a beautiful poem @Jodel712 thank you for sharing
That sums up how I’m feeling. Having a rough time too💔. Thank you so much for sharing take care
Listening to the show must go on earlier.burst into tears.husband been gone 7 weeks.
It doesn’t get any easier as time goes by.we just pretend it does in front of other people x
My husband has been gone 8 weeks. Having a dreadfully low day. Nothing is getting any easier. Once the funeral is over people forget that you are still here. I’ve tried pulling myself together, it doesn’t work. I made myself eat dinner last night which made me feel uncomfortable. Then at 10pm i threw it all back up. Was only a smLl serving. I miss him so much. I want him to hug me and tell me its going to be ok. My life is shit now and i dont want to be here anymore. X
Husband been gone 11 weeks.good and bad days. miss him every day.take it one day at a time x
So sorry for your loss.
Those feelings are very familiar. I had thoughts of not wanting to be here anymore without my husband and still do. I wish I could say it gets easier but time doesn’t make it better, time just helps you learn little by little to face each day. I have suffered loss before in the family but nothing prepares you for losing the love of your life.
All I can say is don’t expect too much of yourself, the sadness is overwhelming sometimes but it’s natural you’ve lost a part of yourself. Your life has changed too, in fact you’ve lost your life as it was.
Writing things down has helped me, I started writing our funny stories down & memories. I message him every day & also write poems of my feelings. I talk about him all the time as do our family & friends and don’t be afraid to cry in front of people. Whilst I’m still here he’ll never be forgotten.
Take care x
Thankyou Jode, i feel so low. Tried ringing friends to talk to but everyone out or busy. Family all working. It helps me calm down if i chat for bit otherwise it gets out of control and then i cant stop. Rang my son at work in the end. Its so hard. X
I will try writing things down, see if it helps. I have a book where i write my thoughts and questions. X
