lifelong broken heart

We don't want to say goodbye we don't want to feel that empty
But it's time to face the dawn head on
When there's something in the wind when the days go getting shorter
And the nights run cold and clear down here

We'll take each new day to give what we need to do our part
While were learning how to live with a lifelong broken heart

And we never will forget it's a privilege to remember
The sound of days gone past will last
We can see you in the stars come some vivid night in November
With the last few leaves that fall recall

Surely each new day will give what we need to do our part
To keep learning how to live with a lifelong broken heart

Oh you beautiful one so clearly a gift life had designs of its own
To set you adrift

So go lightly where you must travel soft upon new wings
You will never be alone go on
When we cannot understand when we cannot find new meaning
We'll seek out the ones you loved and love

Taking each new day to give what we need to do our part
To keep learning how to live with a lifelong broken heart
Were just learning how to live with a lifelong broken heart

Hi! I just stumbled on a link to your blog and could hardly believe it. I can't imagine losing your in laws/parents and baby girl all in one day. I am so sorry for your loss and the lifetime of grief. I know you get stronger and the days get easier but for the moments that the grief literally takes your breath away, I am sorry. I've been blessed to still have all my children with me but I want you to know your beautiful daughter is remembered by those who never knew her. Because she lived, mothers who read your blog live in more gratitude for the gift of life given to their children. Thank you for sharing your story. I hope you feel her hugs today.

Oh Angie..What a horrible reality. A lifelong broken heart. That was a beautiful poem. Think of you, Brady, Q and Ryder every single day. Love you all.
