99 loving someone you can’t be with

Loving someone you can’t be with

Loving someone you can’t be with
Will often cause pain and sorrow
From a future that once held promise and hope
To now where there is no tomorrow.

Perfection it seemed was so close at hand
In a relationship filled with such love
That its loss now seems to only bring tears
And no help from the Heavens above.

The loss of parent, the loss of child
Or a romance that suddenly turns cold
A heart that is broken by a beast and a fool
Was not how this was meant to unfold.

For those that you cared though now gone
Will always stay in your heart and your mind.
And though it is hard that loss will depart
But know that great love you’ll still find.

Though with broken heart and tears in your eyes
You may think there cannot be any other.
Whether the loss in your life was your daughter or son
Or your father, or mother, or brother.

Each was here and they loved you
So please remember all that they gave
Don’t close all doors and withdraw from the world
Instead please have hope and be brave.

For there really is not just one soul mate
And another child may come
To a home cold and lonely and waiting
For the coming of a daughter or son.

Terry Fox showed the world his great courage
He made both of his parents so proud
And you too can choose tears and sadness
Or to rejoice in a voice clear and loud.

Of the love that you gave and were given
Of the love that you shared for a while
So gently then move to the future
And remember the loss with a smile.
