I wanted to write him a letter from Carly, but instead, this came out. I'm not a "poem writer" so don't judge it too harshly.
I heard mommy asking me to let her know I'm near.
I've seen the way she's cried because I am not there.
I've watched you comfort her, and keep her calm, and wipe away her tears.
But sweet daddy, I also see you, and I know how much you care.
I hate to have to leave you with empty dreams and empty arms.
I miss you too, and wanted to be yours, for as long as He would give.
But here I am in Heaven, skipping your world's harms.
And when He calls you back, here too, you'll one day live.
Between you and I is only a veil, and it isn't all that tough.
But still I know it hurts you not to see, or hear, or get to feel my touch,
Be assured I know of other ways that we can be together while it's rough.
The spirit you've been given will remind you that I love you very much.
So listen up, all day long. I'm always all around.
I'm in your heart. I'm in the breeze. I'm playing in the brook.
Yes, that's right, it's me that's making all that silent sound,
You'll know it's me if you just take the time to look.
I wish he knew how it was killing me to not ask him to talk about losing her. Sometimes I cry because I miss her... and sometimes I cry because I feel so alone in my missing her. I know he misses her too... just as much as me... maybe more. That's not the issue. Him not wanting to talk about her isn't fair... what about my need TO talk about her? I have to tell him that no group, or blog, or therapist can replace my need for him... and I feel alone without him.
