let me give your heart a break

yesterday while listening to the radio, a line in one of the songs i was listening to caught my attention: "let me give your heart a break."

as yet another mother's day descends upon us, that is what i wish i could do for all of my fellow bereaved mothers. i wish i could give your hearts a break. i wish i could take away some of the pain that we all feel on a daily basis grieving our children. i wish that we all got a lifetime pass from ever having to deal with any kind of suffering or loss again after losing our children.

but unfortunately that is not the case. i don't know why but in the last couple of weeks it feels as though i have heard quite a few stories of loss, some families that have experienced this intense pain for the first time, and some families that, heartbreakingly, have had to go through the pain of loss again.

to all of you out there that are hurting:

i'm sorry.

i hope this mother's day is gentle.

i wish i could give your heart a break.

You know what I think would be good - I think it would be good if we could all share - in the way, you can get other people to babysit your living kids. So, say on Sunday, I could just take your grief - wrapped up in a bundle, I would keep it safe and nurtured, and you could go off - grief free and have a lovely time, - knowing it was safe. Then later in the week, you could do the same for me.

I know this sounds totally crazy - but I think it stems from trusting you with my (precious) grief - as you would obviously know exactly what to do with it. Then we could both get a day off. Sorry if that sounds totally crazy or rude! It wasn't meant to be of course!
