The Empty Bed

I'm finally doing it.  I've felt the need to start a blog since my youngest 16 year old son Jesse died July 7, 2010.  As I've been going through the grieving process I've written a lot, over 30 poems so far.  I've been on the side of grieving where I was the one who didn't know what to say,  found myself being consoled by the one who I was intending to console.  I have learned so much and want to share the things I've learned as I've gone through this process.  I want this to be a place where those who have suffered the loss of a child or loved one, especially having an empty bed in their home,  can share their feelings -- anger, grief, abandonment etc. A place where we can share the amazing things about the one they are missing.  The lessons learned,  faith that has been challenged or strengthened.
I have already written a lot and will begin posting -- my thoughts, feelings and experiences ... the poems I've written.  I invite you to share your thoughts about what I've written or about your own experiences.

I thank you for sharing in this journey ... sometimes roller coaster ride, this tribute to the life of my dear son H. Jesse Allen.
