The feeling is the same –
My heart has been ripped out.
I didn’t think I would ever again
Feel a duplicate hurt like that.
It had been different every other time
Coworkers, friends, family…
But I grew closer to him
Right towards the end.
And I did NOT want him to go!
The pain of losing your parents
Is like no other.
9 years now she has been gone
And almost 8 months now for him.
And I still want to talk to them
Every single day,
And it rips that wound back open.
