Remembering the Good
When you listen on the surface, it appears to be another love song. But it’s about a Love who has died and the singer is actually longing to have them back in their lives.
I have a friend who quite recently lost her husband. It was a bittersweet relationship, but they did love each other intensely. Unfortunately this world was too overwhelming for him and he took his life, leaving my dear friend to pick up all the pieces. You can never be sure what goes on in someone’s mind when they choose to leave this world like that, and no one can ever judge. It’s an extremely sad situation and I do hope she doesn’t blame herself.
For me, I lost two extremely close friends within a matter of a couple of years, when I was still at school. I had to sing at one of the funerals. Understandably, it was hard to comprehend both deaths (that happened by car accidents, totally unrelated). I beat myself up for a while, wondering why two really close friends of mine had left this world. I got so caught up in the grief that I somehow blamed myself, but I was also very angry with God and the world at the time. It took me a few years to come to terms with their deaths, and I do believe now they are smiling, giggling and probably shaking their heads at me… both beautiful angels who are having an absolute ball in Heaven.
Most of us have lost someone in our lives, in some way. Somehow, we have to keep going on our own journey, and we need to remember all the good, all the beautiful memories we have of them.
