Sharing my journey through grief, in the hopes of helping others.
In June of 2005 my son took his own life. My grief is no less today than the day it happened. One of my facebook friends posted this song last week and I have absolutely become obsessed with it. It speaks to me and for some reason has become such a comfort to me. The young lady who sings it looks like an angel herself and her voice is beautiful. I just wish I knew who the author is. I would like to thank whoever wrote it and the beautiful girl who sings it. Sooo moving!!
I am so sorry, when a child of ours dies, nothing is ever quite the same again. It will be 7 years this coming September since Rachel's death, and there is not a day that goes by that I don't think of her, missing her. As for this beautiful song, I agree it just seems to find a way into our hearts, for me, giving me a sense of comfort and peace. As for the author, Lizzy Nelson wrote the song, her and her sister Dani are singer, song writers.

I came across this last night on a friends site. I listened, adding it to my Facebook. I too have lost a Son, Mike almost 5 years ago. As his mother I will never be the same. The loss is so great. I feel a part of my heart is missing. The girl singing this song, "Dancing in the Sky" has such a beautiful voice. The words touched me so deeply. The best part of us is gone. I am so impressed. Thank you so much Dani & Lizzy Nelson.
Bonnie, I am so sorry for your loss. True we may go on with our lives, but we are definitely not the same. One things if for sure, we are so much better for having had the love only a child can give, and for this we are forever grateful. We are so much better because of them, and Mike is no exception. Hugs!
`I am so obsessed with this beautiful song. I keep listening to it over n over again. the words are so beautiful. she looks like an angel singing it . thank you so much for sharing this song. god bless you a million times.
I found this song in August and have shared it on Facebook many times and show everyone who I think it could help. I love this song! It makes me think of my daughter Amara, and makes me smile. My heart was broken for 7 years, now I think of her dancing, smiling, happy, beautiful angel. Thank you Dani and Lizzy for the most deeply feeling, loving song.
Jonna I am so sorry for your loss, but what a beautiful image this song portrays for those of us who have had a loved one die. I too picture my daughter, Rachel and all my relatives and friends dancing awaiting the day when we will all be together again. Blessings and hugs!
We had 2 sons that passed away one 10 years ago and two and a half years later. They were like soulmates. I listen to your song every day. Thank you for writing this song. I can't seem to get over this. But this song helps me and listen to it all day. Thank you for writing it. Forever ggrateful. Frank and Maire Sippel
