Love and miss you very much.Theres not a day goes by I don`t think about you.

Normal after your child dies?

Original poem by Tara and Heath Carey
Normal is having tears waiting behind every smile when you realize someone important is missing from all the important events in your family’s life.

Normal is trying to decide what to take to the cemetery for Birthdays, X-mas, Hanukkah, Thanksgiving, New Years, Valentine’s Day, July 4th and Passover.

Normal is feeling like you can’t sit another minute without getting up and screaming, because you just don’t like to sit through anything anymore.

Normal is not sleeping very well because a thousand what if’s & why didn’t I’s go through your head constantly.

Normal is reliving the accident continuously through your eyes and mind, holding your head to make it go away.

Normal is having the TV on the minute you walk into the house to have noise, because the silence is deafening.

Normal is staring at every boy who looks like he is Taylor’s age. And then thinking of the age he’d would be now. Then wondering why it is even important to imagine it, because it will never happen.

Normal is every happy event in your life always being backed up with
sadness lurking close behind, because of the hole in your heart.

Normal is telling the story of your child’s death as if it were
an everyday, commonplace activity, and then seeing the horror in
someone’s eyes at how awful it sounds. And yet realizing it has
become a part of your “normal.”

Normal is each year coming up with the difficult task of how to honor your childs’s memory and their birthdays and survive these days. And trying to find the balloon or flag that fit’s the occasion. Happy Birthday? Not really.

Normal is my heart warming and yet sinking at the sight of something special Taylor loved. Thinking how he would love it, but how he is not here to enjoy it.

Normal is having some people afraid to mention my son, Taylor.
Normal is making sure that others remember him.

Normal is after the funeral is over everyone else goes on with their lives, but we continue to grieve our loss forever.

Normal is weeks, months, and years after the initial shock, the grieving gets worse, not better.

Normal is not listening to people compare anything in their life to this loss, unless they too have lost a child. Nothing compares.
Even if your child is in the remotest part of the earth away from you – it doesn’t compare.

Losing a parent is horrible, but having to bury your own child is unnatural.

Normal is taking pills, and trying not to cry all day, because you know your mental health depends on it.

Normal is realizing you do cry everyday.

Normal is being impatient with everything and everyone but someone stricken with grief over the loss of their child.

Normal is sitting at the computer crying, sharing how you feel with chat buddies who have also lost a child.
Normal is not listening to people make excuses for
“G-d may have done this because…”

I know Taylor is in “heaven,” but hearing people trying to think up excuses as to why a fantastic young man was taken from this earth is not appreciated and makes absolutely no sense to this grieving mother.
Normal is being too tired to care if you paid the bills, cleaned the house, did the laundry or if there is any food.

Normal is wondering this time whether you are going to say you have two children or one child, because you will never see this person again and it is not worth explaining that Taylor is dead.
And yet when you say you have one child to avoid that problem, you feel horrible as if you have betrayed the dead child.

Normal is asking G-d why he took your child’s life instead of yours and asking if there even is a G-d.

Normal is knowing you will never get over this loss, not in a day nor a million years.

Normal is having therapists agree with you that you will never “really” get over the pain and that there is nothing they can do to help you because they know only bringing back your child back from the dead could possibly make it “better.”

Normal is learning to lie to everyone you meet and telling them you are fine. You lie because it makes others uncomfortable if you cry. You’ve learned it’s easier to lie to them then to tell them the truth that you still feel empty and it’s probably never going to get any better — ever.

And last of all…
Normal is hiding all the things that have become “normal” for you to
feel, so that everyone around you will think that you are “normal.”

The above poem was originally written by Tara and Heath Carey after they lost their daughters Violet and Iris in 2002 when natural gas caused their apartment to explode.

Mom – Mother’s Day Poem


With Mother’s Day approaching I know it won’t be easy
You brought me into this life and for that I am grateful
You nourished, cherished, and looked after me
Never once asking for anything in return

If life was perfect, I would be there with you on your special day
Instead there will tears that you will need to wipe away
Distance cannot stop the love of a mother and child
So know that I am at peace, and my heart is full of love

You don’t need to feel bad, or shed a tear
The thoughts, the dreams, and the aspirations you had for me
For your aspirations have been fulfilled
I now sit in the presence of God, what better feat could there be

There will come a time that we will be together again
I’ll be here waiting for you, just as you would me
My love for you will never diminish
Even though I am not there
You’ll always have my tender loving care

Just sit, close your eyes, and you will know
That no matter where, I am always near
You are my Best Friend, My Confidante, My Loving Mother

Happy Mother’s Day ….I Love You….

For All Mother’s – Happy Mothers Day

I’m Not Far Away

Mom, please listen to me
As I take time to write.
I see parents struggling daily.
Their pain is such a fight..

All of us who have gone on
And left the rest of you behind..
We’re ok, Mom, I promise..
Heaven is beautiful, and God is kind.

You used to tell me that one day
God would call and take you home.
You told me you’d make me strong
So I would stand tall when alone.

But things happen sometimes, Mom
That does not go in our plans.
I wasn’t scared, Mom,
When God held out his hand.
I didn’t want to leave you
I didn’t have time to say good bye
When the angels said, “Come with us.”,
There wasn’t time to question why.

I’ve watched you daily, Mom.
It hurts to see you cry.
I don’t want you to be unhappy,
Just because we didn’t get to say good bye.

Tell the others what I’m telling you,
So many parents need to know
That Earth was just a lay over
We had another place to go.

I know you miss me, Mom
I know your heart was broken in two,
But God really needed me
Because my earthly life was through.

I’m always alongside you..
I smile and touch your hair.
I whisper “Mom, I love you”,
You just can’t see me there.

I’m the one who gently touches you
On your shoulder when you’re sad.
I’m happy now that you finally found
God again, and are no longer mad.

Tell the parents, Mom, for me
That all of us kids are okay.
God had plans for our lives
When he called us home that day.

I love you, Mom, I always will
And remember I’m not far away.
We’re going to be together
When God calls out your name,
