Our world stands still ...

So few words can express how our world looks after the death of our child/children...

sternenkind-eltern is a Swiss contact platform for parents who lost their child/children.

 

 

The wind is blowing

The wind blows a leaf from the tree

one of many leafs

this one leaf that people are hardly aware of

because one thing is indeed none.

But this one leaf

was a part of our lives.

Therefore this one leaf will

always be missed by us.

You are our star

When I look into the sky I think of you.
You are our star.
As the glow of the stars continues for millions of years,
your glow will remain in my heart.
And it won't extinguish before the moment we meet again.

A melody plays quietly in my heart,

inaudible, yet I can feel it.

In gentle candlelight I feel the sound

that touches my heart.

My heart is broken,

...

but I have that feeling. A faint whisper that tells me: "I am always with you, I love you mom.". I close my eyes and hold you protectively in my arms a feeling of warmth and love surrounds me. But where are you? I feel you but I can't see you. My thoughts are with you, you're so familiar and yet so far. Do you hear the sound of my heart, my child? The tune which plays only for you? A melody plays quietly in my heart, inaudible, yet I can feel it. In gentle candlelight I feel the sound that touches my heart. My heart is broken, ...

The little soul bird felt that he now had to go on the journey itself.


Quietly he
said to his companions:
"Love, never I was without you!"
"Friendship, with you I have so much shared!"
"Security, with you I felt so at ease!"

So they got ready to accompany him.
The little bird was now flying high
to an unknown land and was entirely calm,
entirely calm and without fear
because he was not alone.

Even in my disconsolateness

I honor your memory.

Petra Franziska Killinger

If you look at the sky at night

for you, it will be as all stars are laughing
because I live on one of them
because I'm laughing on one of them.
You alone will have stars that can laugh.

The Little Prince, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
