Words of Grief

Writing enables me to express my grief. It gives me someplace to put those forever swirling thoughts and feelings in my mind. Writing can be a very good form of therapy and often what appears on my paper I didn’t even know was running riot in my mind. On this page I have shared words of grief from my own journey of baby loss.

On the following pages you will find quotes that I have written myself or found comforting from my experience of losing our beautiful Poppy:

Grief Quote: It's in the silence of the night where my guilt, my fear, my shattered heart truly kicks in. No noise, no distractions just my mind to keep me company.
Grief Quote: That moment when the pain physically catches your breath and your chest fills so tight you wonder if you'll ever survive.
Grief Quote: Those moments when missing you catches me unaware.
Grief Quote: All you can do is take each day as it comes. Some days it will be hour by hour and on those really tough days it will be minute by minute. The waves will ride high and low, and you may not feel it but you will survive. The storm will never leave but you will find glimmers of light.

Grief Quote: Those moments when you feel your heart physically ache.
Grief Quote: I love walking in the rain because no one can see my tears.
Grief Quote: I'm not sure where to find my strength.
Grief Quote: There will never be a but in losing you.

Grief Quote: There are moments in life that the human heart just isn't designed for.
Grief Quote: Losing you has completely broken me.
Grief Quote: My heart has been shattered into a million pieces but very slowly the pieces are being stitched back together. Some days the stitches loosen. Others they snap completely. My heart will never be as it was before, but each broken piece is a little piece of you. The immense love of you. The immense pain of losing you. This shattered heart gives a place for you to live inside of me forever.
Do not stand at my grave and weep by Mary Elizabeth Frye.

Quote: I just want you here.
Quote: Missing you is exhausting.
Quote: I never thought we'd have to say goodbye.

Grief quote: That moment when your fear overwhelms you and you just want to climb out of your own body, run away and hide from reality.
Baby loss quote: Missing you beyond what any words could ever describe.
Some days I just cannot comprehend what happened.
I will see you in my dreams.
You will always be my favourite memory. I struggle everyday as I didn't want you to be a memory, I wanted you to be here where you belong. Sara Millen. www.mypoppyrose.co.uk
