Death of a Parent at 19 was created by jaylad92
My best friend Brad Wilcox lost his Mother 2 days ago. He is 19 years old. Nobody saw it coming and it was very heartbreaking. I would like to request the help of the force to send some positive energy this way and help the Wilcox family pull through...

For your friends mother.

Eternal rest grant unto her,
and let the perpetual light of The Force shine upon her.
May she rest in peace.



This is for your friend.


FOR GRIEF

by John O'Donohue from To Bless The Space Between Us

When you lose someone you love,
Your life becomes strange,
The ground beneath you gets fragile,
Your thoughts make your eyes unsure;
And some dead echo drags your voice down
Where words have no confidence.

Your heart has grown heavy with loss;
And though this loss has wounded others too,
No one knows what has been taken from you
When the silence of absence deepens.

Flickers of guilt kindle regret
For all that was left unsaid or undone.

There are days when you wake up happy;
Again inside the fullness of life,
Until the moment breaks
And you are thrown back
Onto the black tide of loss.

Days when you have your heart back,
You are able to function well
Until in the middle of work or encounter,
Suddenly with no warning,
You are ambushed by grief.

It becomes hard to trust yourself.
All you can depend on now is that

Sorrow will remain faithful to itself.
More than you, it knows its way
And will find the right time
To pull and pull the rope of grief
Until that coiled hill of tears
Has reduced to its last drop.

Gradually, you will learn acquaintance
With the invisible form of your departed;
And when the work of grief is done,
The wound of loss will heal
And you will have learned
To wean your eyes
From that gap in the air
And be able to enter the hearth
In your soul
where your loved one Has awaited your return
All the time.



May The Force Be With You and Serve You Well.

According to the Arabic proverb, there are no such things as a Phoenix, a Ghoul, or a True Bosom Friend, but I say to you that I found them all among my neighbors. ~ Kahlil Gibran

Thanks to everyone for the kind words. Just thought id give a brief update without going into too much detail but Brads mother was buried this past Saturday and they are holding strong together. i think they are going to be ok and be there for one another. i know that just having them in our thoughts channeled the positive energy to help them through this tragedy. mtfbw us all. much love to everyone thank you so much!
