I have this little picture frame,


That's as precious as can be,


That little frame was originally bought


For someone very special to me.


 


Now, whenever I look at this little frame,


This is what I see:


I see an empty space


Where your beautiful face should be.


 


Each time I gaze upon this frame,


This is what I think:


I think of a little girl


who should have been dressed in pink.


 


Each time I stare at this empty frame,


This is what I remember:


I remember the loss I felt


That fateful day in November.


 


Whenever I see this little frame,


This is what I feel:


I feel a pain within my heart,


A pain that is so real.


 


Each time I hold this solitary frame,


These are my fears:


I fear the loneliness ahead


In the many coming years.


 


Whenever I pick up this priceless frame,


What do I believe?


I believe in my heart that one day soon,


I will learn not to grieve.


 


Each time I touch this single frame,


This is what I realise:


That no matter how badly it hurts,


No one really cares about my lonely cries.


 


Finally, when I put down this picture frame,


This is what I know:


That no other person's photo will,


      In this priceless frame, ever go.....

I am truly sorry for your loss. You are heard and understood by one who has had a few loss's. Hugs. Wonderful delivery of such strong emotions.

Blest be those that can create art under the feelings of loss and grief.

"Empty Picture Frame" is an expression of human nature before the
mystery of life.

This poem, "Empty Picture Frame" takes the readers to an inner trip
on the wings of imagination.

((((Jenni)))). this had me in tears. Sometimes in life special things are reserved for special people and no one can replace that time and space where they were. No one can love as you do, No one can feel like you do...only imagine, so having said that, I am so sorry for your tearful memories. You may not realize this, but your precious child is with you...right by your side. she's a part of you, and you her. the cord is never really broken, just stretched a little

Jenni. I know how special you are and how you feel that loss so profoundly...yet remember that it is sometimes best to never completely stop the grieving for it grounds us to mother earth and our creator in different ways each day that passes. Keep the frame as it is...it is a frame reserved for those close to our hearts. When I lost my firstborn son many years ago...I thought I would never heal...but now I have learned to accept my loss with fond remembrance. Every one is special and no one can take their place but neither can anyone take the place of them either.
