Okay, I'm listening to some songs I used to listen with to a loved one. He's departed. When I listen to those songs there's a huge hole in my heart.

So what I'm saying is: don't indulge, don't enjoy things with those you love. When they're gone, you're the one left to grieve when you hear songs or other things you used to enjoy with the person.

I know I'm wrong, but the pain....

Sandy...I know  what  you mean.....
I lost  my  dearest  dearest one....my mom...lost  my dad....lost  my brother and numerous of members  in the  family....and  the  most  of them  I was standing there...saw them  departing....But  life teaches you so many  things...
 
And  I have  learnt  this  one....
 
God lends to you.....God  takes back from you and God heals the pain and fills the  emptyness with Spiritual Love **   believe  me  sandy...
 
That person is  gone...Mission accomplished...End of the Journey and  we  still have  to go on with our mission...live a good  life....and love each other

I know what you're saying, vutje. But listening to songs, seeing familiar things, going to familiar places, so many memories that the past just resurfaces. I'm not going to listen to songs with people I love. Maybe they can handle it when I'm gone, but I can't when they're gone. Especially my kid/kids if they leave this life before me. My dad's been gone for over xxxxxxx amount of years and when I hear songs from his era, I go crazy. I guess I'm a softie.

See, I'm listening to Skeeter Davis and some guy singing those oldies from the 50's and 60's. So that's what I'm talking about. Ho, ho, ho. Father Christmas. Hey, I'm BRITISH, you know.

But don't listen to me. How can people not enjoy life with their loved ones, huh? I should change the title or just scrap this thread...this topic

The memories are supposed to be fond, but there's sadness also...knowing that you can't communicate with the departed loved one. Anyway, I give thanks to the Almighty every day and I'm grateful for small mercies as well as large ones.

As I said before, scrap the topic. I was feeling nostalgic and missing my friend, listening to songs we used to listen to.

See what I'm talking about. My friend and I used to listen to Gregory Isaace a lot...especially 'Night Nurse'. So how do you think I'm feeling now, eh? LIFE SUCKS SOMETIMES.
BUT THAT CD IS DYNOMITE!!!!!!
