Posted by Waking Up With A Broken Heart in Love & Grief, Uncategorized.


Per Merriam Webster, the definition of grief:


noun \ˈgrēf\

: deep sadness caused especially by someone’s death

: a cause of deep sadness

: trouble or annoyance


Sadness?????  It is way beyond Sadness…….

I can honestly say that is not my definition of grief.  

But then again, how would one begin to describe the sheer, gut wrenching, knife stabbing, all encompassing pain of losing a child?

How do you put into words the never ending torment? The never ending torture? The never ending longing for someone that is still a part of you. How do you describe in words the physical pain?

YOU CAN’T………….

Because there are no words to describe the pain and suffering of a mother who has lost their child.

Beautiful words Silvia.

I used to say I needed to invent a language for this – because I’ve used all the words before, words like “grief” and “suffer” and “despair” and if I’ve used them, they can’t possibly come close to describing what it felt like – what it feels like – to live with Philip’s death.

I am so sorry for your loss; for all of us who suffer this. Peace to you, wherever you can find it, even if for a moment.
