I saw this online and is says it all.

Don’t ask me how I’m doing
Don’t ask if I’m okay
Don’t say they’re in a better place
As you won’t like what I say

No, Time is not a healer
And this was not God’s will
If he knew how much I’ve really lost
They would be right here with me still

I won’t try to be positive
And this wasn’t for the best
My heart’s in broken pieces
And it hurts deep in my chest

Don’t say at least they’re out of pain
Well I’m not and may never be
Their pain is gone, but mine’s still here
It’s been passed on to me

Don’t tell me you know how I feel
Even though it may be true
This grief is MINE
For what length of time
It takes me to get through.

That’s emotive and clearly written from a painful heart,
but the verse:-

Don’t say at least they’re out of pain
Well I’m not and may never be
Their pain is gone, but mine’s still here
It’s been passed on to me

To me that is my final gift to my husband, his struggle to carry on living was
enormous, yet he wanted to live - but he wasn’t living, he was existing in a very
horrid place and so was my son many years before.

My pain is the lesser.
