Losing a loved one is hurtful, the more if it is sudden, when he was at his peak of health and youth. Disbelief, confusion dominated our thoughts, grief brought down our spirit while everything else felt numb and cold. It took awhile to sink and for me to finally accept that a loved one will never come back, saddest part – we never got the chance to say goodbye. And this hurts more than anything…

I wish that through writing I could alleviate the pains of our lost, and for everyone who is also grieving I hope to share this with you…


wish I could go back to the day

when angels came and took you away

I wanted to hold your hand so tight

kiss you gently and say goodnight

and then just before you had to go

I would tell you how much I love you so

i don’t know how, i don’t know why

I never had the chance to say goodbye.
