Losing people you love is beyond difficult, whether it's a friend who moves away or something even sadder.

Write a letter from the person you lose, inspiring you to go on and be the best you can be. What would they want you to do to be happy in life?


Where Do I Go Now?



Where do I go now?

I get lost every day

I wish my mum was with me

To help me find the way


Where do I go now?

I’ve been lost for a while

Right from the second Mum left

The day I lost my smile


Where do I go now?

We knew she couldn’t stay

My dad said Mum's a hero

Who'd want me to be brave


Where do I go now?

I scrunch my eyes so tight

The only way to see her

But I'm blinded by the light


Where do I go now?

I see the flowers grow

And hear her watch still ticking

They obviously don’t know


Where do I go now?

The tears begin to well

But then I hear Mum calling

The room fills with her smell


I never ever left you

I never ever will

In everything surrounding you

See I’m with you still


In the clouds that float by

In the tears that fall

In your young and thumping heart

In your bouncing ball


In the songs we sang once

In the songs of birds

In the rising summer sun

In wind whispered words


I am with you always

Me and you as one

Don't ever wonder where to go

Go on my love

Go on ...
