Losing a Loved One

if tears could build a stairway

and memories a lane
i'd walk right up to heaven
and bring you home again

no farewell words were spoken
no time to say goodbye
you were gone before i knew it
and only god knows why

my heart still aches with sadness
and secret tears still flow
what it meant to love you
no one will ever know

but now i know you want me
to mourn for you no more
but, remember all the happy times
life still has much in store

and since you'll never be forgotten
i pledge to you today
a hollowed place within my heart
is where you'll always stay


Life is short. Relationships are precious. Learn how to create a joyful relationship with your spouse or partner.

My family lost a beloved family friend on 3rd of may 2010. He was involved in a car accident and he was 29 yrs old. We never got a chance to say our goodbyes. It is the most painful thing that ever happened. We are trying to be strong, but nothing can take the pain away.

As if it was written for me
by: Rahat

I recently lost the person I loved. The date was 8th Sept, 2009. It was so unexpected. He was only 40 years old. I am devastated and I feel I will never recover from the pain of losing him. I cry every night and call out his name, but he never answers.
