Stop Praying for me vcl©️

She said, stop praying for me, Mother

I never prayed enough

to stop her

I have stopped praying now

Death whispers her name.

Time has slowed

Silence has replaced

The susurrous swirl

Of conversation

I whisper her name


A Wife, Mother, Grandmother with tons of experience in the arena called *Life* I love information, and endeavor to utilize it as practically as possible. I have worked as a Healthcare coordinator, HR Manager for over 26 yrs, and still employed (19 +years) as a Property Manager of a large complex (I joke that I’m the mayor of a small city). I have raised 4 children, one of whom (a daughter) ❤️has recently completed suicide,which has changed my life forever. I have 8 lovely grandchildren. I love to write poetry and short stories, cook, explore religious experiences and be in charge of stuff :)

      1. I don’t think there is anything I can say to take away your pain. I just want you to know that you are not alone and that it will get easier with time. Try to take it a day at a time. Even a moment at a time. Make sure to take care of yourself and get some rest ❤️


      2. Rest is something I am getting. I have not slept well in over 2 years, as her illness started to become more apparent. I just can’t get past the feeling of her pain and distress the last few hours of her life. She was a funny, gifted, tortured soul. I do pray for time to heal.

      3. I wish you well and will keep you in my prayers. Keep writing and processing your pain. I would also recommend perhpas speaking to a grief counselor in your area. Some one that can help you process your emotions.

      4. Dr. Perry I appreciate your prayers. I believe in them. I am a lucky person. I have tons of support. Too much actually. We are wading through the condolences. I just am at a loss at how fragile life is when dealing with mental health. I will be spending time with a counsel or . Right now I am blessed with your blog. Thank you.
