donít ask me if Iím over it yet.
be over it.
donít tell me sheís in a better place.
here with me.
donít say, ďat least she isnít suffering.Ē
come to terms with why she had to suffer at all.
donít tell me you know how I feel,
have lost a child.
donít ask me if I feel better.
Bereavement isnít a condition that clears up.
donít tell me, ďat least you had her for so many years.Ē
would you choose for your child to die?
donít tell me,
gives us more than we can bear.Ē
just say you are sorry.
just say you remember my child, if you do.
just let me talk about my child.
mention my childís name.
let me cry.
