Wait It Out-Thanks, Sarah!  / Mom-7 Years &. Still Waiting
Where do we go from here?
How do we carry on?
I can't get beyond the questions.
Clambering for the scraps
In the shatter of us collapsed.
That cuts me with every could-have-been.

Pain on pain on play, repeating
With the backup makeshift life in waiting.

Everybody says: "Time heals everything."
But what of the wretched hollow?
The endless in-between?
Are we just going to wait it out?

There's nothing to see here now,
Turning the sign around;
We're closed to the Earth 'til further notice.
Stumbling cliché case -
Crumpled and puffy-faced -
Dead in the stare of a thousand miles.

All I want: only one street-level miracle.
I'll be a an out-and-out, born again from none more cynical.

Everybody says that time heals everything all in the end.
But what of the wretched hollow?
The endless in-between?
Are we just going to wait it out?

And sit here cold?
We'll be long gone by then.
And lackluster in dust we lay
'round old magazines.
Fluorescent lighting sets the scene
For all we could and should be being
In the one life that we've got.

(Musical interlude)
In the one life that we've got.

Everybody says that time heals everything.
But what of the wretched hollow?
The endless in-between?

Are we just going to wait it out?
Sit here. Just going to wait it out?
Sit here cold. Just going to sweat it out?

Isaiah 57:1  / Mom

The righteous perish, and no one ponders it in his heart; devout men are taken away, and no one understands that the righteous are taken away to be spared from evil.

"Over You"


Weather man said it’s gonna snow
By now I should be used to the cold
Mid-February shouldn’t be so scary
It was only December
I still remember the presents, the tree, you and me

But you went away
How dare you?
I miss you
They say I’ll be OK
But I’m not going to ever get over you

Living alone here in this place
I think of you, and I’m not afraid
Your favorite records make me feel better
Cause you sing along
With every song
I know you didn’t mean to give them to me

But you went away
How dare you?
I miss you
They say I’ll be OK
But I’m not going to ever get over you

It really sinks in, you know, when I see it in stone

Cause you went away,
How dare you?
I miss you
They say I’ll be OK
But I’m not going to ever get over you

An Unclouded Day  / Mom
O they tell me of a home far beyond the skies,
O they tell me of a home far away;
O they tell me of a home where no storm clouds rise,
O they tell me of an unclouded day.

Refrain

O the land of cloudless day,
O the land of an unclouded day,
O they tell me of a home where no storm clouds rise,
O they tell me of an unclouded day.

O they tell me of a home where my friends have gone,
O they tell me of that land far away,
Where the tree of life in eternal bloom
Sheds its fragrance through the unclouded day.

Refrain

O they tell me of a King in His beauty there,
And they tell me that mine eyes shall behold
Where He sits on the throne that is whiter than snow,
In the city that is made of gold.

Refrain

O they tell me that He smiles on His children there,
And His smile drives their sorrows all away;
And they tell me that no tears ever come again
In that lovely land of unclouded day.

A Litany of Remembrance
Roland B. Gittelsohn



In the rising of the sun and in its going down,

we remember them.

In the blowing of the wind and in the chill of winter,

we remember them.

In the opening of buds and in the rebirth of spring,

we remember them.

In the blueness of the sky and in the warmth of summer,

we remember them.

In the rustling of leaves and in the beauty of autumn,

we remember them.

In the beginning of the year and when it ends,

we remember them.

When we are weary and in need of strength,

we remember them.

When we are lost and sick at heart,

we remember them.

When we have joys we yearn to share,

we remember them.

So long as we live, they too shall live, for they are now a part of us,

as we remember them.

Distance never seperates  / Mom   Read >>
Distance never seperates  / Mom

“Distance never seperates two hearts that really care, for our memories span the miles and in seconds we are there. But whenever I start feeling sad cuz I miss you I remind myself how lucky I am to have someone so special to miss.”
― Henri J.M. Nouwen

 

“Compassion asks us to go where it hurts, to enter into the places of pain, to share in brokenness, fear, confusion, and anguish. Compassion challenges us to cry out with those in misery, to mourn with those who are lonely, to weep with those in tears. Compassion requires us to be weak with the weak, vulnerable with the vulnerable, and powerless with the powerless. Compassion means full immersion in the condition of being human.”
― Henri J.M. Nouwen

Appreciate your children.  / Mom
My son a perfect little boy of five years and three months had ended his earthly life. You can never sympathize with me; you can never know how much of me such a young child can take away. A few weeks ago I accounted myself a very rich man and now the poorest of all. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson~ Close

I Walked a Mile with Pleasure  / Mom
I walked a mile with Pleasure;
She chatted all the way;
But left me none the wiser
For all she had to say.

I walked a mile with Sorrow
And ne’er a word said she;
But oh! The things I learned from her
When sorrow walked with me.

If I die young bury me in sun
Lay me down on a bed of roses
Sink me in the river at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song
uh oh uh oh

Lord make me a rainbow I’ll shine down on my mother
She'll know I’m safe with you when she stands under my colors oh and
Life ain't always what you think it ought to be no
ain't even grey but she buries her baby

The sharp knife of a short life well
I’ve had just enough time

We thought of you today  / Momma
We thought of you today
But that is nothing new.
We thought of you yesterday
And will tomorrow too.
We think of you in silence
And make no outward show
For what it meant to lose you
Only those who love you know.
Remembering you is easy
We do it everyday.
It's the heartache of losing you
That will never go away.

A Soft Goodbye  / Mom   Read >>
A Soft Goodbye  / Mom

 

A Soft Goodbye

When the light begins to fade
And shadows fall across the sea
One bright star in the evening sky
Your love's light leads me on my way.

There's a dream that will not sleep
A burning hope that will not die.
So I must go now with the wind
And leave you waiting on the tide.

Time to fly time to touch the sky.
One voice alone - a haunting cry.
One song one star burning bright
Let it carry me through darkest night.

Rain comes over the grey hills
And on the air a soft goodbye.
Hear the song that I sing to you
When the time has come to fly.

When I leave and take the wing
And find the land that fate will bring
The brightest star in the evening sky
(Is your love far from me)
Is your love waiting far for me. 

Is your love waiting far from me....

Rabbit Hole (2010)

 

Becca: Does it ever go away?
Nat: No I don't think it does. Not for me it hasn't - has gone on for eleven years. But it changes though.
Becca: How?
Nat: I don't know... the weight of it I guess. At some point it becomes bearable. It turns into something that you can crawl out from under and... carry around like a brick in your pocket. And you... you even forget it for a while. But then you reach in for whatever reason and - there it is. Oh right that. Which could be aweful - not all the time. It's kinda...
[deep breath]
Nat: not that you'd like it exactly but it's what you've got instead of your son. So you carry it around. And uh... it doesn't go away. Which is...
Becca: Which is what?
Nat: Fine actually.

__________________________________________

When Becca asks of Howie “What next?” he says that we can go to the toy store and buy the game Candyland for their niece. After a moment of silence Becca asks “Then what?” There is no answer but there is a hint of hope. Ultimately perhaps all there is to do may be in John Ruskin’s phrase “to watch the corn grow and the blossoms set; to draw hard breath over ploughshare or spade; to read to think to love to hope to pray and in the words of Elizabeth Lesser “to relax into the mystery of not knowing. And then to come into a peaceful knowing – a faithful wisdom that surpasses control and certainty.”

I LLOVE YOU!  / MOM   Read >>
I LLOVE YOU!  / MOM

“You can shed tears that she is gone
or you can smile because she has lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that she'll come back
or you can open your eyes and see all she's left.
Your heart can be empty because you can't see her
or you can be full of the love you shared.
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday
or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can remember her only that she is gone
or you can cherish her memory and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind
be empty and turn your back.
Or you can do what she'd want:
smile open your eyes love and go on.”

 

 

True but easier said than done.

 

I LOVE YOU RACHEL!!
