An unthinkable pain...

2 days ago
one of my dearest friends,
lost her 14 year old son.

Life has taken on
new perspective.

The hurt is so deep.
To watch someone
I love
go through something
so terrible..
is beyond words!
To miss a young man
whose spirit touched so many..
so difficult!
To grasp how fragile and out
of our control,
our children's lives really are...
so frightening!

It still feels surreal..
A nightmare!

This friend...
is one of the best people I know!
She is a wonderful mother
of 5 children.
She has been an incredible friend!
A support and love
during hard times in my life.
And as she faces this
dark, dark hour..
I feel helpless!

The only peace is found
within our faith..
Hers, her sons..
The comfort held within
our fathers arms
is all there is to share.

My heart grieves
for all the hurt
and my mind is struggling to grasp it...

I wish...
I wish...
I wish...
oh, that it might
make a difference!


  1. So sorry to hear of the sad loss.

    My thoughts are with you and your friend.

  2. I am so sorry! I can't imagine!!
    Hugs to you and your friend
