Please

"Please don't ask if I'm over it yet.
I'll never be over it.
Please don't tell me he's in a better place.
His isn't here with me.
Please don't tell me you know how I feel,
Unless you have lost a child.
Please don't ask me if I feel better.
Bereavement isn't a condition that clears up.
Please don't tell me at least you had him for so many years.
What year would you choose for your child to die?
Please don't tell me God never gives us more than we can bear.
Please just say you're sorry.
Please just say you remember my child, if you do.
Please just let me talk about my child.
Please mention my child's name.
Please just let me cry."
