You have lost a child, a spouse, a mother or father and the emptiness is more than you ever imagined. With time, the pain eases and the tears are less frequent, but the emptiness remains. There remains a place only they could fill.
How long will you grieve is answered by how long will you love. Your love for them doesn’t cease because they are no longer here. Your love continues as does your grief. How long will you grieve? One day at a time for the rest of your life.
