Songs

Music connects to our souls and touches our hearts. Here are some songs on YouTube that I like to listen to, there are so many that bring instant tears, and rip me apart, yet these are touching without too many tears…

I have now embedded the songs to this page so you can listen to them right here, the page will load slower for dial up connections, but it’s worth the wait!

Feel free to send me any that you like to listen to for encouragement, empowerment, or peace. These are a mix of songs, some religious, some rock and roll, I respect everyone’s choice to believe in God, or not. I believe in sharing the love with all, regardless of their beliefs. Grief and pain touch us all equally.

In choosing to focus not on the death and pain,

but on the lives that brought me love & light,

I share these songs with you.

Grief Beach is our theme song for the grief retreat, Grieving In Plain Sight

Kris Voelker and I wrote it together.

All others were from other people submissions on YouTube, 

please let us know if some stop working.

This was Terry’s Farewell Song.

This was Brandon’s Farewell Song, and it rips me apart.
Yet it is such a wonderful song if you relate the song to
mother/father and child love.

Danny Gokey – What hurts the most

I can take the rain on the roof of this empty house
That don’t bother me
I can take a few tears now and then and just let them out
I’m not afraid to cry every once in a while
Even though going on with you gone still upsets me
There are days every now and again I pretend I’m ok
But that’s not what gets me

What hurts the most
Was being so close
And having so much to say
And watching you walk away
And never knowing
What could have been
And not seeing that loving you
Is what I was tryin’ to do

It’s hard to deal with the pain of losing you everywhere I go
But I’m doin’ It
It’s hard to force that smile when I see our old friends and I’m alone
Still Harder
Getting up, getting dressed, livin’ with this regret
But I know if I could do it over
I would trade give away all the words that I saved in my heart
That I left unspoken

What hurts the most
Is being so close
And having so much to say
And watching you walk away
And never knowing
What could have been
And not seeing that loving you
Is what I was trying to do

What hurts the most
Is being so close
And having so much to say
And watching you walk away
And never knowing
What could have been
And not seeing that loving you
Is what I was trying to do

Not seeing that loving you
That’s what I was trying to do
Ooohhh….

Today my precious Kara would be 35 years old. I was blessed to have her with me until she was “almost 20″… she wanted to be 20 so badly. I often wonder if she would have become an FBI agent, as that was her goal. She was determined to “make a difference” in the world, and I believe she would have accomplished that dream. As she was my only child, life without her is lonely & always will be.

Love you Kara.

Joyce Posted this song in her memory:

 


 

Songs to remind us to let the love in – my partner –

my friend – love the pain away…

Above all we must realize that each of us makes a difference with our life. Each of us impacts the world around us every single day. We have a choice to use the gift of our life to make the world a better place – or not to bother.”
~Jane Goodall

I end with this song, as we heal, there is no way but UP from here!

    I found your page and I am so moved by it and glad I found it. I lost my son 16 months ago. Your song “Grief Beach” is beautiful. How can I get a copy of this for myself? Thank you for sharing. It is so helpful.

    I came across your page & it’s wonderful! I lost my Mother at the age of 57 to lung cancer just 7 months ago. I have no idea how to cope or go on without her for the rest of my life. I read a lot & try to understand the whole death concept but it doesn’t seem to help. I wanted to share a song from Leona Lewis called Footprints in the Sand. It’s so sad but beautiful. Maybe you can post it to your blog.

    Anyway…It’s a lonely feeling losing someone so important but it’s pages & sites like yours that reminds me I’M NOT. So thank you!
