Bereaved Parents of the USA, National Gathering

is the key to
survival for
bereaved parents
Talk to someone!

And through all the tears,
and the sadness
and the pain,
comes the one thought
that can make me
internally smile again:
   I have Loved!

   *   *   *   *
The first time a memory
slides over us like a wave
of warmth,
we have turned the
corner of our grief.

We cannot give you back
what you have lost,
but we know where you are today -
because we have been there ourselves.

We cannot give you the answer
to your "why" questions
or take away your pain
or give you peace.

But we can be here for you.
We can walk the path of grief with you -
because many of us have walked
the whole way -
and we made it !
