It's been 2 years since I last held you in my arms and heard your sweet voice.
During these past 2 years I have learned a few things.
I have learned that time cannot heal your absence, how could it?
Time has no voice, it has no smile and it has no heart.
I will always be a grieving mother. I will always miss you.
I will always love you.
I have become familiar with loss, your loss. It is now a natural part of my life.
Endure is what I now do, endure is what God asks us to do.
I have learned that it does not need to be an agonizing endurance,
I can find joy along the way,but I have to look for it.
One of the most important things I have learned is that it is
possible to feel sorrow, joy and peace at the same time.
I still have dark hours,and I have them often, however,
I have the hope of an awaiting sunrise and an eternal morning,
this brings light and love into my heart.
I believe if Kristen could say something to us she would say,
"Don't lose your way
With each passing day
You've come so far
Don't throw it away
Dreams are for weaving
Wonders are waiting to start
Live your story
Faith, hope & glory
Hold to the truth in your heart"
