How Much I Miss You

“There are no words that can ever say, how much I miss you everyday
As times goes by the loneliness grows, how much I miss you nobody knows
I think of you in silence, I often speak your name
But all I have are memories and you in a phot frame
Nobody knows my sorrow, nobody sees me weep...
But the love I have for you is in my heart to keep
I’ve never stopped loving you, I know I never will
Deep inside my heart, you are with me still
Heartaches in this world are many, but the death of your son or daughter is worse than any
My heart aches as I whisper low
I love you and miss you so
The things we feel so deeply are often the hardest to say
But I just can’t keep quiet anymore so I’ll tell you anyway
There is a place in my heart that no one else can fill.
I love you so much my precious child
And I always will”

Missing Jack is something has never got any easier over the last four years, if anything it’s the one part of my grief that has got harder. The longer time passes, the more the finality and reality of his death has sunk in for me. I miss everything about little thing about Jack and the life, love and relationship we had as mother and son. People who expect you to be “over it by now” “better” “fixed” “moved on” can’t possibly imagine the pain of losing a son or daughter.

Sadly, people lose their or son or daughter every day,
Sadly, thousands of families live with this many unimaginable every day,
Sadly, there is a lack of support services available to bereaved families and that is why Brightest Star was established.

Someone once told me that “Brightest Star exists to saves the lives of those left behind”
Currently we offer peer support groups and one to one support/counselling/therapy sessions to parents after the death of their son/daughter. We also offer a bereavement programme to children who lose a brother or sister and I am delighted to announce that we are now extending our one to one support/counselling sessions to grandparents.

If you are a parent or grandparent looking for support, please message or email us to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. If you know a parent or grandparent who has lost their son or daughter, of any age, from any cause of death then please share our details with them.
