On losing someone close-

I ask the world to break my heart and leave her heart alone.
The world says I can't do that and it cuts me to the bone.

I'd rather cry a thousand tears then see her cry just one-
but grief's a selfish gift and so her tears are not my own.

If I could beat it senseless grief would fall into the dirt,
but grief's the one who does the beating, the one who leaves us hurt.

I've said that grief's a gift, and an honor to the past-
We do not miss the ones not loved, forgetting them so fast-

but those are empty words I throw into the great unknown,
I ask the world to break my heart and leave her heart alone.

I'm with Brother Wrecking Ball.
I am sorry for anyone's grief. And no, you cannot take it but you can help bear it. A little.

Tenuous at best. Cherish it.

Be strong. You and she have a LONG way to go.

All life is precious. We are part of ALL life....Part.

Peace to you my would be friend......

I so know your pain, my friend. No one can take another's burden of grief, but if there is anything you or yours need, just say the word.

So hard. So so hard....

I don't know what's going on for you, but I can talk a little about losing someone important, as you know, my friend. And I know how it is to be helpless in the face of someone else's grief. I would only say that I'll bet a thousand dollars you are more help than you could know.

Stay strong and pedal on.

BEAUTIFUL words, by the way.

Beautiful words for a beautiful life gone. I'm so sorry.
