Grief – Author Markus Fleischmann


I am sitting in the dark with my love as we look into each other’s eyes. I know if they take her away there is no life. Take her away and I will die. Tell me this is not goodbye.

Do you remember the butterfly? It made me cry. We dried up its wings so it could not fly. Do not say goodbye.

I wonder if this is the end for you and I. I know I have to say goodbye. I know I would change my life for you.  I would die for you. I remember all the things we used to do, all these memories I keep of you.

With your image in my eyes, I take you with me telling no lies.

I swear I will find you. I will keep searching for you until the end of time. If I cannot survive without you by my side, then wait for me on the other side.

I barely see you anymore. You must remember the butterfly. It did not die. I love you.

  1. How do you go without someone one by your side on a daily base, remember that she would be their for you and you miss their laughter their smile and her being right their for you, I miss that person in my life as well, she was a Mother to all Mother and special when she knew she was going back to me, and she just close her eye, and I didn’t feel know more pain, and getting over her is going to take time, and I know I cannot being her back, but I would love to, your message is beauty and hit me were I need to be in my life, and I think about her all the time, so thank you so much Belinda Burroughs
