Grieving for a Lost Love

I have not blogged the usual two posts this week because my dear other half has passed on. This morning I said my final farewells to him and I am trying very hard to cope with reality. I am wishing that I could turn time around and do the things that we had planned, spoken and contemplated about. I did not even have the time to say goodbye to him. My friends and relatives have told me to keep strong which I find very hard to do right now .... I can only hope that it gets easier with each passing day.

I will not be blogging for a while but hope to come back soon.

If Tears Could...

If tears could build a stairway
And memories were a lane,
I would walk right up to heaven
To bring you home again.
No farewell words were spoken.
No time to say good-bye.
You were gone before we knew it,
And only God knows why.
My heart still aches in sadness
And secret tears still flow.
What it meant to lose you,
No one will ever know.

Hugs to you during this time...I very much understand your pain. I am so sorry for your loss and will keep you in my prayers.

It takes awhile to be strong too. Bit by bit, life comes back together, but for awhile sometimes the best you can do is just to get up each day, do one nice thing for yourself and surround yourself with people who can be your strength until you get yours back .

Words can't express how I feel about your loss. I can only pray that God will sustain you and give you strength each day. Take care and God bless.

Jo, I'm really sorry to hear about that. I totally wasn't expecting that at all! It struck a blow on me, too.

Jo, stay strong. The love you and your better half have for each other is eternal. Nothing will erase it; it's carved out by you and him throughout these years. I wish I can be right there for you, accompanying you through and through.

Jo, he loves you, no matter where you two will end up in. He's somewhere out there overseeing you, taking care of you, making sure that nothing happens to you and your loved ones. That's why you guys are united, out of the many in this world.

Remember, you have family and friends who love and care about you just as much. So, stay strong and positive. I know it's gonna take time to have everything fall into place ... to have everything make sense to you amid the sudden change in life. We know you can! Jo, you'll have our fullest support and love!

Take care, and stay positive. If you need company, let us know. When you're in KL, I can come see you. =)

Love lots,
Pei-Lin

I am so sorry Jo. May you be comforted by those who love you at home and with this blog. My prayers are with you.

By the way, Jo, you need not worry about blogging regularly and whatnot. Mostly importantly, take your time and rest for a while. Let us know if we can help in any ways, if possible. Take care. Remember to tell me if you need company when you're back in KL. I can come look for you. =)

Love lots,
Pei-Lin

Im your silent reader and I wish to convey my deepest condolence to you. I lost my dad in a freak road accident and we also did not have a chance to say a single word to him before he left us. It takes a while to get over it, but rest assured that you WILL get over it and move on with life. Getting over it does not mean forgetting him. They will always be with us forever. Take care.

I am so sorry for your loss. I've lost my husband 8 months ago and I have 2 young boys. The journey is different for everyone. I think of him everyday and I have bad days and good days. There are less and less bad days now.

myfoodsafari said...

I know everyone is being supportive. But speaking from my experience, be there, be supportive but please do not ask us to be strong. Because sometimes we just don't want to be or can't be and that is okay. The different emotions that we go through and questions remain unanswered. Acceptance that sometimes that will not fall into place.

noobcook said...

Dear Jo, I was really saddened to hear this news. Please accept my heartfelt condolences and take good care of yourself. I live in Singapore too, so you can drop me a note if you need a listening ear. You are in my thoughts *hug*
