"No one's death comes to pass without making some impression, and those close to the deceased inherit part of the liberated soul and become richer in their humanness."

"As I walked toward the darkness, I realized it was only a reflection of my inner self, and my sole purpose became clear. I was to stay in this darkness, let it consume me, and help the others escape from this place which has trapped me for so long."

Everyone comes to me with their problems because I have good ears. Maybe people feel like this, and don't have anyone to talk to.

"Wherever you go, whatever you do, the people above are watching over you!"
Written in 2004 by Jennifer V., Age 15 --- Ontario, Canada
My poppy and his wife (my step grandma) were killed in a car crash a couple of years ago. It was very hard for all of our family considering we have a very large family. When I was sad I would always say this quote to myself it made me feel better. I hope you people dealing with a death will feel better once you read this quote.

When the time comes by
And it's time to tell you this is not a lie
For me to say how much I cared
The memories we have been shared
To those who loved me so much
I thank you

For all the good times and bad times that I had here
Feel the beat of my heart; you will hear it clear,
The words "I love you" yes, it's true "I swear"
In time of your loneliness, I'll be near
Close your eyes, but do not cry
For life still goes on

Try to be happy all the time
Leaves falling from the trees,
Years will written upon the brows,
Everything will change,
Except me!

My story is over, and it comes to an end
Through the mystery path, I must go
I walk only by myself
But I will leave my heart knowing
You're so dear to me.

If quiescent conquered me,
It doesn't mean I am not here to stay
Just call me
Even though you can't touch nor see me
With the love you have given to me
I will live forever
Through night and day
Because you are remembering me.....

This is for those who are in great pain of losing someone so dear to them. Don't think that you lost them, they are there in your heart. For those people who loved me, I thank you


I feel sorry for myself for I've learned to love you. I don't know why it was happen but it just happened and nobody could help it. Your ideas were enough for me to see myself in you. We were compatible and had something in common in so many ways. But it can't be because of the consequences we face with our families. This is the reason why I want to forget you.

I should not have loved you, but "Oh God," I always will. How I wish I had never met you, but I always wanted to see you. Avoiding my own feelings is hard for me to do because of the fact that I truly loved you. My unspoken feelings are like a knife tearing me apart. I kept smiling but I cried deep inside. You took the big part of my heart. Now I don't know how long can I go on if I'm alone through the night? Only your memory brings the light; here my heart feels like it will die whispering your name. "Please help me to survive...."

I will always love you...


My heart ached that day when my grandma died, her memory still fresh here in my heart and mind. I used to weep every night before she died. I combed her long, curly, white hair and soothed her calloused hand. Her wrinkled face showed undeniable glows. How happy she was when I told her, "Grandma, I love you and I will take of you 'till I grow up. She touched my head and smiled. She called me, "my precious little one", and I saw tears in her eyes when she embraced me.

That night, I wanted to go out. I told Grandma but she told me to stay by her side. I was a little young lady then who longed for a party. I snuck out the back door and left her with my mother. When the party was over, my heart beat fast. I didn't understand. I ran rapidly towards her house. Seeing people all around, I went to search for her, only to find her lying in a casket, in peace.

If only... if only... If only I had listened to her and never left her that night, maybe, maybe, I would have made her last night happy. Grandma, you know I love you so. Wherever you are, all you've taught me will be with me forever. I promise that and I miss you so much.

The road I walk is too steep
There's so much to carry
And there's so much to worry.
Bruises and scars you will see
If you come close to me.

But the child within me, you cannot see
Because I hide it from the glamor of the city.
Natural essence of being me
I lost it in the world of society
Being clapped, being praised.

I've worked here, there and everywhere
Time swiftly so fast I don't care.
But now I am tired of busy street
I'm longing for peace,

This body of mine needs a rest
For a place I know it's the best.
They don't know I am a child at night

Living in a world all is fake.
It shows the reality unto my face,
In the mirror I see I cannot take.
I kneel down and cry,
For I know what's my prize?

Emptiness, loneliness deep inside
In myself I cannot deny.
In YOU I go and ask, why?
Why happiness I cannot find?

No matter what I do
I feel so blue,
Is it because I don't know YOU?

You make me see the things
I've never knew,
You make me feel so low,
You make me realize
I'm a little girl
Who needs to be love, and cherish by life.

Now I saw myself, running from the fields full of green,
Free from hatred, worries and pain,
For the love from YOU
I eternally gained.
Thank you Father for bringing me home again...

When you feel tired and feel so low, just go to HIM. He will guide you.


Rain, I call when there's so much pain
Rain from heaven, an ache without a name
Rain, when you are falling and you can't explain
Rain, the tears that you give in
Rain, when you still remain unchanged.

Rainbow is what you see after rain,
Rainbow, if you open your heart, learn to let go,
Rainbow, if you let yourself fly without sorrow,
Rainbow is a hope, there's a life for tomorrow,
Rainbow, when you make your dreams come true,
Rainbow is the color of life you must continue
Rainbow is the smile that you show to all your love ones who care so much for you,

After rain, there is a rainbow, if you let it show......

Sunset begins to fall and same story has been told.
At the end of the road no one knows,
Only God can answer when your name will be called.
Trust him, he knows what's best for all.
The task He has given is not yet over
It's only the beginning of new phase of life.
v You take cover; don't be afraid to travel,
For life by his side,
He offers his promise and will love you always.
Remember in his kingdom we will soon be all together.
We leave our loved ones behind
But their memories will be forever in our heart and mind.

Fill each day with love for every human being
As long as you have time,
Because a treasure you will find
He will open your eyes so that you will understand
It all happens for a reason,
Just trust him and his mighty hand.

Don't let your sorrow consumed your being
Because God created you to do something
If your hands and feet are not working
Maybe your tongue is capable for speaking?

God loves you so much,
He doesn't create you for nothing
So before the time of your leaving
Please accept him as your everlasting king
In His kingdom soon we will face him,
We know, in heaven he is waiting....

"Grief knits two hearts in closer bonds than happiness ever can; and common sufferings are far stronger links than common joys."
