“Try to Live” – Just for Today

I received the following from a fellow grieving dad and friend that I met through this project.  I will be posting a separate section of the poem Just for Today  to ponder every couple of days.  The poem was written for bereaved parents by Vicki Tushingham.  Feel free to share with others. 

 Just For Today For Bereaved Parents  (Section 1)

 Just for today I will try to live through the next 24 hours
and not expect to get over my child’s death,
but instead learn to live with it, just one day at a time.
