Tears of Remembrance

I feel like such a thief, always stealing stuff from Katie, but I just wanted to share this here too...

Tears of Remembrance

There will come a day when the tears of sorrow will softly flow into tears of remembrance and your heart will begin to heal itself and grieving will be interrupted by episodes of joy and you will hear the whisper of HOPE.

There will come a day when you will welcome the tears of remembrance as a sunshower of the soul; a turning of the tide; a promise of PEACE.

There will come a day when you will risk loving; go on believing; and treasure the tears of remembering.

I'm finally at the whisper of HOPE again. I felt like I was stuck in sorrow and grieving forever and then hope came and made my world bright again. Hope is a wonderful thing. It is what keeps me moving forward. Without it, I wouldn't know how to fight my way out of the constant sadness. To say "risk loving" is so poignant to me. That is exactly how it feels. If I am lucky enough to have another BFP it will be a huge risk to allow my heart to fall in love with my baby inside me. But I will. There is no other way for me. So I will take the risk. The leap of faith. I will jump off the huge cliff and have hope that I will have the chance to love again.

That is a beautiful poem. Reminds me of my Dad.

I hope you get the chance to fall in love again. And not have your heart broken.
