Hang on Little Tomato

My heart is breaking.

My friend’s little boy died suddenly. He was two years old.

What does a Mom say to a fellow Mom, whose life and heart are shattered? I cannot imagine the pain and sorrow. There are no words. Only tears, a heavy heart, and prayers for comfort.

That boy was full of life. Chubby cheeks, huge smile, giant blue eyes. A bruiser with a healthy appetite and hearty laugh. A future so bright.

He thrived. Until, all of a sudden, he didn’t. He died on Tuesday.¬†He was the apple tomato of her eye.

I dedicate this post and song to my friend and her sweet, little tomato.

“Hang On Little Tomato”

The sun has left and forgotten me
It’s dark, I cannot see
Why does this rain pour down
I’m gonna drown
In a sea
Of deep confusion
Somebody told me, I don’t know who
Whenever you are sad and blue
And you’re feelin’ all alone and left behind
Just take a look inside and you will find
You gotta hold on, hold on through the night
Hang on, things will be all right
Even when it’s dark
And not a bit of sparkling
Sing-song sunshine from above
Spreading rays of sunny loveJust hang on, hang on to the vine
Stay on, soon you’ll be divine
If you start to cry, look up to the sky
Something’s coming up ahead
To turn your tears to dew instead
And so I hold on to his advice
When change is hard and not so nice
You listen to your heart the whole night through
Your sunny someday will come one day soon to you

My heart is grieved by this news. I will pray for your friend to find solace. Hugs for you too, my friend.

I am so sorry. I don’t know what to say.

I think mothers everywhere are grieving and we can pool our prayers and love together, to perhaps give her–and other grieving mothers–a bit of comfort.

Thank you,

Thank you. I think I will just try to be a good listener and hugger and friend.

Thank you,
