Grieving the Loss of a Loved One

Published by Rodrick Bates on

ALL CRIES

The most painful tears fall when a life is taken too soon. I never imagined at all that these tears would fall for you. My everyday life never surfaced the thought of your absence. I am all cries, but I hurt more than any tear can prove. As I spend the rest of my life really trying to grasp this, I have to remember that I was blessed to be a part of your life for as long as it lasted. Even though it didn’t last as long as I wanted it to, God gave me enough of you to be remembered far beyond a casket. I’ll love you tomorrow the same way I loved you yesterday, even if I have to borrow from feelings we’ve already made. No matter how much it feels like too soon, I know this was prepaid. Your soul was just destined to travel a road that’s heavenly paved. We just don’t ever know the day that God will call us to his place. Sometimes feelings leave us speechless, because our eyes are all cries. If you can’t be here, then there’s no better place I’d rather for you to live than in very tall skies. I am all cries. Sad and happy tears fall from my eyes, because you’re no longer here, but God has his greatest prize. It doesn’t matter if you’re far or near, because I am always here. If you ever want to talk from heaven I promise I am all ears. One thing I can’t promise is to refrain all of my tears. One cheek sheds happiness and the other sheds sadness, because I know your heart and I know that I have to live the rest of my life without it. I will always love your heart and the person who has it. You have brought many emotions into so many different lives, but at this time I can only speak from mine, and I am all cries.
