My Angel Child
My Angel Child
So many of my cyber friends have lost their children…these women and men have supported and guided me on my journey with Vic and held my hand in the early days of my grieving and heartache… They KNOW my pain.  I found this poem on a bereavement site and would like to share (and dedicate) it to all the angel moms and dads out there.  Thank you for your support, advice, encouragement and love.
 
My other cyber friends have done their best to understand and love – thank you all.  I appreciate your compassion and continued support.  I pray that you will never experience this pain.  I pray that you will never become Angel Parents…

Angel Moms

We have shared our tears and our sorrow,
We have given encouragement to each other,
Given hope for a brighter tomorrow,
We share the title of grieving mother.

Some of us lost older daughters or sons,
Who we watched grow over the years,
Some have lost their babies before their lives begun,
But no matter the age, we cry the same tears.

We understand each others pain,
The bond we share is very strong,
With each other there is no need to explain,
The path we walk is hard and long.

Our children brought us together,
They didn’t want us on this journey alone,
They knew we needed each other,
To survive the pain of them being gone.

So take my hand my friend,
We may stumble and fall along the way,
But we’ll get up and try again,
Because together we can make it day by day.

We can give each other hope,
We’ll create a place where we belong,
Together we will find ways to cope,
Because we are Angel Moms and together we are strong!

I am a sixty something wife,mother, sister, grandmother and friend. I started blogging as a coping mechanism during my beautiful daughter's final journey. Vic was desperately ill for 10 years after a botched back operation. Vic's Journey ended on 18 January 2013 at 10:35. She was the most courageous person in the world and has inspired thousands of people all over the world. Vic's two boys are monuments of her existence. She was an amazing mother, daughter, sister and friend. I will miss you today, tomorrow and forever my Angle Child. https://tersiaburger.wordpress.com

  1. I can’t understand the pain, but my heart goes out to any parent who has to go through this.
    My heart, my soul my everything goes out to you all.
    Touching poem.

    My son nearly died in my arms when he was 19, but he came back to us. But even still,I can’t understand this pain. All I remember of this time was I prayed hard from the moments he was gone, till he was brought back. I guess I am lucky as is my son. He suffers seizures and can have one at any moment. And every time he leaves the house, like any parent I worry.
    When he is out and the phone goes my heart skips a beat.

    I truly am sorry for your losses and am here for anyone should they need a shoulder or an ear. Truly. That poem touched my heart and my soul. Thank you for sharing. And we will always be here for you.

  2. Just please know, Tersia, how much my heart breaks and continues to break for you. I have no idea how losing Vic feels for you but I do understand the unbearableness. It’s nearly midnight and I am off to bed but I will check on you first thing tomorrow. Sending love always. Juliex

  3. Tersia it is through our commonality that we gain strength, love and support. I wish as one of the grieving mothers I could offer words that would ease your pain but no one can do that, we must grieve and learn and lean on each other but that is all for no words can bring our child back and that is all any of us really need or want. Love my friend and prayers for you …for all of us.

  4. This is a beautiful poem. I know there is nothing I can say to ease your pain, but I wanted you to know my heart goes out to you. I have several friends and relatives who have endured and are still enduring a loss like yours. I would like to share this poem with them. Thank you for sharing it with us.
