I Know It’s Been Hard For You

Dear Mum,

I know it‘s been hard for you

You deserve to grieve.


None of us expected any of this

You have been a rock

An image of strength

Some would say

I got my hardness from you

Is that a bad thing?

Not in the slightest


Dear Mum,

I know it‘s been hard for you

You deserve to grieve.


That night was horrible

You were there for us all

I want you to know

You deserve to be happy

I’m happy for you

And I don‘t mean that half-heartedly

Dad would want you to be happy too


Mum.

I know it‘s been hard for you

You deserve to grieve.


Dear Brother,

I know it‘s been hard for you

Dad would be so proud.


None of us expected any of this

You have had your highs

And you’ve had your lows

But you have grown so much

Brother you are resilient

You are strong too

Just look at you now


Dear Brother,

I know it‘s been hard for you

Dad would be so proud.


That night was horrible

Yes, we all argued

But we were only eighteen

So young, so vulnerable

So much going through our heads

He wouldn’t want us to dwell

He would want us to be happy


Brother.

I know it‘s been so hard for you

But Dad would be proud.


Sincerely, a Daughter.

Sincerely, a Sister.

Forever Young

I’ve been thinking a lot about life recently How fleeting and unfair it can be at times How suddenly you left Without a hug or a kiss goodbye Maybe you were too good for this world So much experience

Closeness

That’s when it hit me We have deprived ourselves of it for so long How can we learn again? I don’t think we realised until now I just want to be heard, talk to me, hold me I don’t know where to start
