It wasn't long enough

I know we don't know each other, but I've been keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. I can only imagine, certainly can't expect to know what it is that you are going through, but know that I would feel the same, that it wasn't long enough. My prayers continue for you and your family.

What a beautifully, sad song.

I find complete and total therapy in music, and lyrics. I follow this other woman's blog, who lost her husband, and at one point I posted these lyrics to her because I had heard this particular song so many times, and loved it. Finally, I heard it through her ears, and sent it.

I realize this song may be way to early for now, but it is so beautiful. I tried to get a good link from You Tube (I was hoping you could hear it, rather than just read it), but couldn't find one worth while.

Julie Roberts ~ All I Want

What I need is medication
In the form of a vacation
What I need is skies of blue

What I need is a perspective
One that's healthy but objective
What I need is a point of view
What I want is you

Everyone says, move on
That is what you would want
Good advise, they are right
That's what I need to do
But what I want, all I want is you

What I need is bread and water
And a father for our daughter
What I need is someone new
What I want is you

Everyone says, move on
That is what you would want
Good advise, they are right
That's what I need to do
But what I want, all I want is you
(Only you)

[Instrumental Interlude]

What I need is loss of memory
To forget when you were with me
What I need is to admit we're through

What I want, what I need
Oh, what I want is you (only you)
What I want is you

(Only you)

All I want
Is you

Thinking of you, and praying for peace.

I am thinking of you still everyday, and every time I think of you, I pray for you. My heart aches for you and your family. I will continue to pray for you and promise that I am trying every day not to take for granted what I have. My love, thoughts and prayers are continually with you...

I think about you nearly every day. I know the next few days will be terribly difficult. Praying that God will carry you through.

I know it doesn't fill the gaping hole in your heart, but you are so deeply loved.

Becky said...

I PROMISE that you will be in my every thought and prayer this weekend. You are loved.

Dear sweet girl,
I just happened to read your story. There are no words I can say.. Just a HUG from another mom.

I feel so sad for what happened to your beautiful family. My father in law died unexpectedly, and my grieving son cry all the time. I cannot imagine how painful it is for your children as well. Write everything you need to tell your husband whenever you miss or think of him.
I'm one of those people praying for you, please have a strength..

I stumbled across a comment you left on another widows blog... I haven't been able to read all your posts yet but I just wanted to reach out a little. I'm five months into living without the love of my life. I am so sorry that you too have now joined the club nobody wants to be in. I still feel like i'm spinning in circles and I don't know what direction to start walking in. I'm sure it's hard for you to breath and you still can't comprehend that it's all real. I know you probably feel numb and even though your surrounded by people who love you, you've never felt more alone. Though you try, there will never be words adequate enough to describe your love, nor the pain you feel with his absence. There are no magic words of comfort... but from one young widow to another, without any other words being said " I get it."

I listened to this song all the time after Josh died in Afghanistan. I'm so sorry for your loss.
