I smile recklessly and I love excessively. I live today knowing I have no other day until tomorrow. Now is my moment. Yesterday is gone, tomorrow is a mystery, but today, today is my gift (present).

I miss you mum, I miss you dad

This is dedicated to my loving mum and my dear dad, and everyone in the blogsphere who's lost someone important in their lives.

I miss you dad, I miss you mum.
I love you

It's like I can almost hear your voices in unison,
"And we love you, baby. Take care of 'your family'.
Don’t worry we’re in a better place now."

The Lord giveth, and the Lord taketh away.
Though we loved you so much, your missions on earth are accomplished.
I thank God for the years that He gave us, together.

Thank you for shaping me to the woman I am today. Thank you for giving me 'my family'.


I fear not what the future holds
But more what the future unfolds
Coz I'm hurting each time that I breathe in life without you
Every hour solemn I need you
I'm falling now
What can I do
There's so much to give
If only I had my hands to fix things
So I hold it inside watch as it dies
I can't even look at the sky it's burning my eyes
Similar to smoke I wish I could float far away from here
I hope one day that this pain stops
Washing me away

I was dealing with the death of my father
And now with the death of my mother
I miss you both too much
But you know that I'll ride to the end
I didn't cry when you died
But I let my tears fall on the track
The track to follow back to us

Everything happens for a reason
You don't know what you have till it’s gone
That's why I’m taking advantage of the fact I’m breathin'

These words are dedicated to my mum and dad
Iknow in future I’ll see you both,... again
I know you're both looking down on me, proud
I know you both love me

I hope one day that this pain stops
Washing me away

In life things go wrong
If they don't kill you they make you strong
So you must hold on
If everything was right then something's wrong
Ironic ain’t it
That’s just the way life is
That's why I thank God every chance I get for blessing me
With my beautiful family
What's victory with no laws
What's smiling with no tears
What’s love with no hate
What’s courage with no fears
Just think about it and apply to your life
And no matter what the problem is
Don't worry darlin' keep your head up
It's gonna be alright
I hope one day that this pain stops
Washing me away

very moving.....it is irreplaceable
the loss of one so dear...two is beyond measure.

yet the Lord did give you time with them. He wanted time with them too...

Maua said...

@joyunspeakable, thanx. I hurt so bad. Does it get any better at any time. Just imagining that I'll never see them again realy beats me.

I know He wanted time with them, too, but He could have waited a bit longer. He understands, but we don't.

Hi Maua... my thoughts are with you dear... Don't forget to smile thru the tears; It may not be apparent now, but hopefully one day you will come to find out, that He never takes, He just gives and gives....

I understand to some extent the pain and loss. When I lost my dad, someone told me I will get over it, I thought they were insane. Does the pain go away? Dont think so although it does dull to some extent but I know of days when it just hurts so much to breathe and other days I rejoice for the time I had him here and look forward to the day I will see him again.

So hold on and be encouraged. Its one of those things I will need an explanation for when we get to the other side of heaven

I was going to skip commenting for i have an uncanny knack for saying the wrong thing but... they would be so proud of you now for this loving tribute to them.
Brought a tear to my eye.

and to answer your question NO it doesnt get better with time, we just learn to cope with the gaping hole that they leave behind!

Maua said...

@KK, thank you, that's a revelation.

Extra..grace & half n half, I'm learning to cope. EG, I hope I remember to ask that quetion then.
