International Bereaved Mother's Day 2023

Today is International Bereaved Mother's Day.
International Bereaved Mother’s Day is special day to
have our children, and our never-ending grief, acknowledged.

I do not need a special day to bring Colt to my mind.
The days I do not think of him are very hard to find.
Each morning when I awake I know that he is gone.
And no one knows the heartache as I try to carry on.
My heart still aches with sadness and secret tears still flow.
What it meant to lose you Colt, no one will ever know.
My thoughts are always with you, your place no one can fill.
In life I loved you dearly; in death I love you still.

When you lose a child, you lose an entire lifetime of dreams, hopes, wishes and plans.
I miss my son all day, every day.  I think of him every day. 
I go to sleep thinking about him. I dream about him. I wake up thinking about him.

I love you, Richard Colt Hazlett.
"Do not judge the bereaved mother, she comes in many forms. 
She is breathing, but she is dying. 
She may look young, but inside she has become ancient. 
She smiles, but her heart sobs. 
She walks, she talks, she cooks, she cleans, she works, 
She IS, but she IS NOT, all at once. 
She is here, but part of her is elsewhere for eternity."
