“Just for Today” for Bereaved Parents – (Section 7)

Just for today when my heart feels like breaking, I will stop and remember that grief is the price we pay for loving and the only reason I hurt is because I had the privilege of loving so much.

I would agree that it was an absolute privilege to have been the dad to both of my children.  I never got to hold them while they were alive or see them grow up.  They never got to experience all of the things I wanted them to experience in life.  I am so very proud to be their dad.  There isn’t a day that goes by where I don’t think about them.  I love them and miss them so very much. I look forward to the day of holding them and seeing them smile.

I received the ”Just for Today” poem from a fellow grieving dad and friend that I met through this project.  I have been posting separate sections of the poem to ponder.  The poem was written for bereaved parents by Vicki Tushingham.
