Without You – April 19, 2013


Reposted from http://therootwitch.wordpress.com/2013/04/19/without-you-april-19-2013/ 

These beautiful words moved me to tears.  I cry easily these days.  

Without You


Living without you is like;

Learning to dance without music

Learning to love without a heart

Wanting to scream without a voice

Learning to fly without wings

Driving a car without a steering wheel

Seeing a sunset without eyes

Wanting to talk without having words

But somehow I am managing to go on

…Half a person

…Half a heart

…Half a soul

Living without you

Has changed me

You might not know me anymore

I am a sixty plenty 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. She was so fortunate to be immersed in your love and compassion, not only while she was alive, but ascending even now with her spirit. I, too, feel as though I need to grieve her passing as you did such a wonderful job over time allowing us into your life. Her life. She will forever be a part of us. I worry from reading your subsequent posts that your suffering may hinge on depression…you verse sounds diminished and lonely…and I just want you to know that you have a whole community that you’ve built through this blog that are something of an extended family for you. Through you vulnerable posts, we have journeyed vicariously with you and Vic and continue to journey with you following her death. I rather suspect some spirit (God, if you must) brought us all together to share the load of suffering…so please, take advantage of our love and presence.


    1. I am a new reader of your blog, bought here by the reposting by my dear writing friend, Jane Johann. I agree with what dmchale says above and hope that you will turn to this community which has embraced you for help, love and support. I know it is sometimes hard to accept help as I have been in bereavement this past year for my husband and you have inspired me to write about. I have already written some about my daughter who died of Cancer when she was 50, 6 yrs. ago. I know what it is to lose a daughter and not feel complete. My hearat is with you and your friend.


      1. Thank you so much Clara for visiting and your kind words. I am going to your blog right now. I am so sorry for your losses. I hope that you will find the comfort and love that I did. Hugs
