I find death so confusing. My best friend's father died and I have no idea how to help, what to say. I hate how people keep saying things like "I know just how you feel because..." or "I lost my father, too". These are not helpful statements.
I have no IDEA how she is feeling except sad and hurt. The world feels different after someone you love is gone. And you wonder "Where are they? Can they see me? If I talk, will they get the message? Do they still love me?"
She knows I'm here. If she needs to lean or cry, I'm that shoulder. I wish we weren't half a country apart so I could be more helpful. I'm just babbling, I guess. Sorry.
I have the song "On Eagle's Wings" in my head. It was sang at my grandfather's funeral and it brought me such comfort.
