Death, Grief, and Sorrow-I Need a Friend


“When I was in distress, I sought the Lord; at night I stretched out untiring hands and my soul refused to be comforted” (Psalms 77:2)

“Weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning” (Psalms 30:5)

What do we need the most when a loved one has passed?

Yes, we need flowers. Yes we need cards and kind words. But most of all we need a friend–someone who truly cares, understands, and feels our pain.

At this crisis in our life we need someone to stop talking, and simply listen to what we have to say. In other words, we need someone we can pour our heart out that will hear to our cry without judging us.

Excerpt from book It’s my Time to Grieve by Phoebe Leggett

Be my Friend

Just grieve with me

And understand

The pain in my heart

Just be my friend

Just cry with me

And hold my hand

Just feel my pain

Just be my friend


Just be with me

And help me mend

Just let me talk

Just be my friend


Just pray with me

‘Till I can stand

Just be with me

Just be my friend
