Don't ask me

P. Félix Jiménez Tutor, escolapio.....



Take to heart this advice from Rita Moran, a woman whose daughter died in a car accident.

Please, don´t ask me if I am over it yet,
I´ll never be over it.

Please, don´t tell me she´s in a better place
She isn't with me.

Please, don´t say at least she isn´t suffering
I haven't come to terms with why she had to suffer at all.

Please, don´t tell me 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 God never gives us more than we can bear.
Please, just say that you are sorry.

Plese, 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.
