What does it feel like to know your loved one is gone?
Does your stomach clench with a pain you can't describe?
Do your eyes well up in tears that feel wrong?
Well, I'll tell you that when my mother passed
My world fell apart around me and I didn't even know
So caught up in the "What do I do nows?"
It felt like I was frozen in the snow
Day by day I slowly melted
I still cried, sure, but even then I tried not to
There were good days and bad days where I had to be strong
Dad said if we sticked together everything would be alright
And I would be alright
Now I try to stay in the positive
The Half Full, not Half Empty attitude
Because I was surely half now
And life would eventually be the same again
It's slow progress when you lose someone
And you're trying to get back on your feet
But time heals old gun wounds
And the hardship is only a storm that you'll get through
So if they ask, "What Does It Feel Like...?"
You lift your chin up higher
Tell them everything that kills you makes you feel alive
Because you are alive
And even death can't take away what it truly means to have life.
So treasure your emotions
Because in time they shall surely pass
Remember your loved one with a smile
And don't be bitter if you can
Since in the end, you'll probably end up seeing them again anyways
