“How can I tell my heart, that you have gone away, I want to make things right, but don’t know what to say, I am lonely and sad, I cannot believe you have gone, but others tell me to get over it, they say I must move on, but they don’t know how I feel, they would not know where to start, one minute I was happy, then my world was ripped apart, yes I need to mourn, and to do it my own way, to listen to my heart, and not what others say, yes there will be dark times, yes I will be sad, it will hurt me for a while, when I remember what we had, but time will heal my heart, time will ease the sorrow, it may not be today, it may not be tomorrow, yes there will be tears, I may scream and shout, I can’t lock the pain away, I have to let it out, true friends will stick by me, others may walk away, true friends will hold my hand, and listen to what I have to say, it’s my right to mourn, and to learn to deal with grief, it’s not what you see on the outside, but the way I feel underneath.”
