I like it too Susie.  :'(   Anything to do with Heath is bittersweet, that's the way it is.

Late afternoon breeze, sand blowing by
Loved ones gather where ocean meets sky
Orange sunset glow fades into black
You are gone, no way to turn back

Your daughter’s face alive with your smile
Forever is too long a while
To take from her your warm embrace
Where strong arms were, now empty space

For you, all stop, nothing more
Journey over, slammed shut final door
We leave you, sweet prince, to your sleep
Hands still now, at peace, yet we weep


I miss you today, Heath.


Susie,
That was beautiful!  :'(

Susie, that is so beautiful. I had goose-bumps in my neck..

Four months already.. When I think of Heath I have a crackling, dusty, silent picture in my head. It's as if he's in a old fashioned framed picture in a dark waiting room somewhere and a big wall clock is ticking and his life and achievements are belonging to the world's historical past..

Not sure if that came across the way I wanted, but still, that picture is there.

Oh Susie,
you made me cry, that was so lovely,particularly strong arms being empty and the smile of his daughter.
I find it hard sometimes to look at Matilda she is so like him. My middle son is like that,he literally is a mini dad, I look at him and see my husband.

If Michelle was still in love with Heath,and I suspect she was (can't live with each other can't live without sort of thing) it must hurt very badly sometimes when she looks at her daughter.I know it would cripple me.

Hi.  I just wanted to share something.  It's one of my favorite songs that when I originally heard it, it reminded me so much of Jack and Ennis.  Very fitting.  Performed by Enya, it is sad and beautiful.  I think it is also appropriate for remembering Heath.
Here are the lyrics:

IF I COULD BE WHERE YOU ARE

Where are you this moment?
only in my dreams.
You're missing, but you're always
a heartbeat from me.
I'm lost now without you,
I don't know where you are.
I keep watching, I keep hoping,
but time keeps us apart

Is there a way I can find you,
is there a sign I should know,
is there a road I could follow
to bring you back home?

Winter lies before me
now you're so far away.
In the darkness of my dreaming
the light of you will stay

If I could be close beside you
If I could be where you are
If I could reach out and touch you
and bring you back home
Is there a way I can find you
Is there a sign I should know
Is there a road I could follow
to bring you back home to me

I started to reread a few pages of this thread. I never went back to this thread the whole year. I didn't get far today, but that's ok. No need to reread everything.

But I read a post by you, that you had sent me a text message/SMS that night a year ago. I never got it, and have never read this post, until today.
So a very belated thank you Jude.

Sometimes I think I'm "fine" and "over it,"  then I'm caught unawares...  and so back in denial.

I see Heath every day on my desktop.  (And I'm fine.)  But then, I catch a particular image (e.g. Ennis on the home page today), and I'm so totally, "No, it can't really be possible...." and have to click away.
