Cooping with Death

I not one that coops with death very well

But when you get bad news

It never goes so well

I hate to see someone dear to me die

It just hurts to see them gone

You wonder why they had to go



I don't coop with death so well 

Im the type that rather be alone 

I dont want people to see me with my red eyes

From all the crying that I have done

I dont like to see someone lifeless body

It makes feel really sad and hurt


Anne Lamott said

“You will lose someone

you can’t live without,and your heart will be badly broken,

and the bad news is that you never completely get over the loss of your beloved.

But this is also the good news.

They live forever in your broken heart that doesn’t seal back up.

And you come through. It’s like having a broken leg that never heals perfectly

—that still hurts when the weather gets cold, but you learn to dance with the limp.”


I never forgot the day

I got the  news that my father's mother had died

I was only ten years old

I haven't spoken to her in years

But to hear that it tore my  heart to shreds

I couldn't believe my ears


The woman I known all my life  was gone

And I ouldn't do anything about it

I never got the chace to say goodbye

I thought of her all the time

My Grandma could never say I love you anymore


But I could say i never forgot you

You will always be in my heart

And I MISS you so much
