I dont know how to title this, I dont know if i have the right to put this here, I dont want to upset anyone, but I saw this and it it made me think.

What is it like to lose a child?

I hate my shoes

I am wearing a pair of shoes.
They are ugly shoes.
Uncomfortable shoes.
I hate my shoes.
Each day I wear them, and each day I wish I had another pair.
Some days my shoes hurt so bad that I do not think I can take another step.
Yet, I continue to wear them.
I get funny looks wearing these shoes.
They are looks of sympathy.
I can tell in others eyes that they are glad they are my shoes and not theirs.
They never talk about my shoes.
To learn how awful my shoes are might make them uncomfortable.
To truly understand these shoes you must walk in them.
But, once you put them on, you can never take them off.
I now realize that I am not the only one who wears these shoes.
There are many pairs in this world.
Some people ache daily as they try and walk in them.
Some have learned how to walk in them so they don't hurt quite as much.
Some have worn the shoes so long that days will go by before they think about how much they hurt.
No one deserves to wear these shoes.
Yet, because of these shoes I am a stronger person.
These shoes have given me the strength to face anything.
They have made me who I am.
I will forever walk in the shoes of a someone who has lost a child

I miss you Sylvia Bella
she was 14 months old when we lost her

Beautiful yet heartbreaking quote.
Love and thoughts
Sleep peacefully baby, Sylvia Bella.
Id be honoured to hear about Sylvia Bella.
No doubt she bought you lots of joy in her short time.

Lovely poem.

Sixteen years yesterday since I lost my 7 year old DS Jay, I'm one of these:

*Some have learned how to walk in them so they don't hurt quite as much.
Some have worn the shoes so long that days will go by before they think about how much they hurt*.

Things do get easier over time.
