The Greatest Loss

To lose a child and then

hear it was God’s will,

then to be expected to carry on

after your life has stood still.

To hear it was all

part of a specific plan

and you have to be strong

because you are the man.

To have to place him

in a small white casket,

then forever by your side

like an unwanted mascot.

To hide the tears

you so want to shed,

then going to bed, wishing

it was you that was dead.

    No words can comfort someone who lost his child. Life never remains the same.

  2. No words will suffice… just a prayer somehow the love and beauty in you will never go away. Thankyou for writing so beautifully. Pain is a terrible thing and often in its ragged way rakes in diamonds. Our son was born blind, then has other health issues. Heartbreak is a chasm, merciless. I’m learning to let go, and let God hold me. Its exhausting, all this. I’m trying to be that child, for Him. You are beloved of the Father, that’s all I know to say. Stay precious, stay blest.🌻

  3. I am so sorry for your loss. I can’t imagine the pain and heartache that comes with the loss of a child. I’ve always hated when someone tells me it’s God’s will or his plan when we lose someone we love dearly. That notion is not supported by the Bible. Death was never God’s will and even he called it an enemy that will be destroyed (1 Corinthians 15:26). You will see your beautiful child again, as Jehovah God promises to resurrect those who fall asleep in death (Acts 24:15; John 5:28,29). I pray He provides you with the strength needed to endure this difficult time until this promised is realized.
