Yet still I cry

It’s almost been a year since I lost a huge part of my life. Yet still I cry.
I am rising from the ashes and finding strength in the new day, yet still I cry.

My children have started smiling again, they play, yet still I cry
I have written a book, I’m getting media attention because of it, but yet, still I cry.

I’m in transition back to work and my face wears a smile, but yet still I cry.
I am living Kyron’s dream, I know he is proud, but yet still I cry.

You see I have so much love for him, with no where for it to go, this pain makes me cry.
I long to touch his physical self, to say I love you but I cant and so I cry.

I stare at pictures, I see his smile and yes they make me cry.
I read of another stabbing, I think of him and then I start to cry.

I leave my house and see our youth, they remind me of him and it makes me cry.
We dress for family functions, I see 4 instead of 5 and yes, that makes me cry.

When I dish out dinner, buy presents and clothes, he is missing and so I cry.
Christmas and birthdays my King is not here, so I lower my head and cry.

Many people say, rise, move on with your life, don’t let the children see you cry.
I wonder why they feel it’s weak to miss a loved one and cry?

My steps are strong, my mind is sound, purpose decorates as I pass by.
Please remember his death broke my heart, so for the rest of my life, for him,
I will cry.

  1. Do not supress any emotion you feel as it is ubhealthy to the internal body and mind to do so, your tears are aid in the healing and act as a cleanser to the burden of pain you feel…take comfort and lie down in whatever you need too at any time you and your family are forever loved. 😘🙏
