My darling son Tommy

by Anne
(Dorset)

12 weeks today you were called by an angel. I know now you have no more suffering. I remember your words telling me how you had chosen a difficult path this life and it was too hard. How you did try, and why you finally had to leave this world, we wonder why...?

In your last moments I didn't even get to tell you how very, very much I loved you, how many dreams I hoped would come for you, how I hoped you knew really how I am always here for you and that you would come home to live near us soon..I didn't even know you were going on your journey. If only I had been close to you that night, if only you could have kept that bright light burning darling.

I take hope and faith in feeling you now are free...free as a bird. You were such as gentleman, such a kind hearted young man, so dearly loved by us all...but the path was just too rocky, and finally it was time to find peace eh my darling.

Rest peacefully my sweet darling and feel us always with you. How I wish I could have more time with you here in this life...but I still do sit and talk to you. Don't choose such a hard path next time if you 're preparing for another one my love.

I know we will meet again and until then, although my heart bleeds, and the tears fall, I'll try to be strong and live on with your light around me. You did teach me so much...and I know you are there.

I love you my Tommy, sweet angel xx

your loss
by: Janelle

Dear Ann,

I'm so sorry for the loss of your son. I cannot imagine what it would be like to lose a son.

Grief affects us all differently. I don't know if you had time to look around the site. After the loss of my husband, I experience a lot of help by making memory books as a way to keep the memories alive for myself and my son.

Others find that they need to work through their grief emotions in more proactive ways. They have a lot of strong emotions that they feel needs to be expressed. They may find help on the grief journaling or the stages of grief hub pages.

May you find your own ways to be honest with your pain while continuing to look for beauty and hope in life.
