Just Another Day Without Her

Rate: 11 Flag

I actually thought that I was doing better.  Then this song came on the radio and I just started blubbering.  Fuck I miss her.

And that last kiss I'll cherish
Until we meet again
And time makes it harder
I wish I could remember

But I keep your memory
You visit me in my sleep
My darling, who knew?

Chica, I'm so sorry. It sucks, but it'll balance a little, over time. I can see why this song would have that impact, though . . . on the surface, it sounds like everything is okay, but listening to the words . . . yeah . . .
This song will do it.
i couldn't listen to certain songs for a long time afterwards. they would immediately throw me back to that moment when i lost him. it doesn't help to tell you that life goes on. it certainly didn't help me at the time, but time has passed, and while the wound still throbs on occasion, i have found a place to put my memories in a happy place, and to re-embrace a life that i know he would have wanted me to live.
do what you need to do to keep sane. writing helps. we are here, listening.
for what it's worth, i didn't know her personally, but i miss her, too.
There are still songs I have a hard time listening too -- thirteen years after my twin brother's death. Oddly they are the songs he never heard; the songs I knew we would have shared and enjoyed together. Other songs, the ones we both loved, that were painful at first, well I get a huge smile on my face when they come on the radio. Like he's talking to me, reaching out to poke me. "See Sis! I'm here." It's still too soon for you, but I hope one day you'll listen to this song and your heart will leap with the joy rather than sorrow. I never thought it would happen. But it did.
~HUGS~ Amy. I'm pretty much in the same mood tonight myself over someone. Not to the extent you are, but I can empathize with what you're feeling
It's always a song, isn't it? *hugs*
I don't know, maybe songs are healing even though it doesn't seem healing when you're sobbing & broken. They allow us to let loose with our emotions, & they're a reminder that we're not alone in our grief. Sorry sorry sorry. Like Owl says, it sucks.
Love and thoughts to you.
Sometimes a song will get us through. Be strong and time will heal you. Jali.
Your reactions honor the love you shared and still share. Don't supress them anymore than you have to, and don't think it means you're not doing better. There's no time table.
*warm hugs* hang in there babe.
All you can do for now, Amy, is keep on keepin' on. It will take as long as it will take for you to grieve.

Still keeping you and the girls in my thoughts and prayers. Keep letting it out, Amy.
Hugs and knishes....
*hugs* I haven't heard this one before.

After my partner Bobbi died, I listened almost nonstop to Roma Downey's Healing angel CD. The song that helped so much was "Until death us do part". You would think it would have depressed me more, but it didn't. It helped.

It's hard Amy. Very hard. Stay gentle with yourself. Please.
