I found myself quietly saying it again last night as we pulled into the garage and I turned off the music (at the moment it was "Guitar") that had been playing on the drive home, "I still can't believe he's gone."

One good cure is to make a playlist of Prince's positive songs and loop it.

I have resigned myself to the fact that I will never get over this. I was just talking about Prince's courage in the other forum. sad

Yes, still hard to believe that our beloved Prince is no longer here amongst us mortals. He lives on in his music. I have accepted that he is gone. There is always going to be an empty place in my soul that he used to occupy. I hope that if I am lucky enough to meet up with him in the afterlife that this part of my soul will be filled up again. I just have to hang on to the memories of all of the good times that his music (and his person) brought to my life. Long live our Prince!

I miss the mystery of his next release and how he would tease us each time. I really miss the live shows. That's what does it for me. We still have his vault...

It's still hard to believe..And I wanted so badly to go to the Celebration last year and this year but.. Unfortunately I can't afford it.I am praying they broadcast the concert on HBO or Showtime..The Estate could make MILLIONS and the fans who can't get there can see it.
Until the end of time

yes. Thank you for posting and being honest because I thought I was the only one. I wouldn't say that I'm "sad" everyday about his passing but I rarely go a day without some thought about him crossing my mind. For example, at bowling, where they were playing a lot of 80's style music; thought "hummm hope they play some Prince"; at the grocery store "darn, why don't I every hear any Prince music"; at church "I wonder what Prince would think of my pastor and this sermon" , washing dishes, "wonder what it was like to work at Paisly Park and wash dishes and keep the place clean"; and yes, before you comment, I do find this a bit weird.

Still feel sad but I have loads of his music that I have yet to listen to. Personally I would feel a lot better if there were no legal complications with his vault so that all his unheard music could be released gradually to be enjoyed. At the moment I have a lot of anxiety about it especially with no updates coming from the estate about it.

Knowing that he was somewhere in the world to share this with us and now he's not. It's not the same.

I even miss him fighting people about youtube and such.

I try not to be. He wouldn't want it and there's still a whole world out there. It may not be Prince but the funk lives on.

Plus the Vault releases still give him a voice to reach us. It just isn't present tense.

This suggestion works. "We Gets Up" elevated my mood today definitely. Fun, upbeat, catchy tune and he just sounds happy.
4/21/16 shook me up. I'm fine, but i don't expect to ever fully get over the loss, so sudden, so unexpected, so large, and so premature.

Oh, I feel it too. But to my great shame, I'm perhaps a bit egoistic about it. Never again will I be amazed at the latest direction Prince has taken musically, never again will I get to see him live in concert. Sure, the Vault releases will be a treat, but it won't be the latest thing Prince came up with.

Once upon a time, I used to think that it was good that I was 20 years younger than Prince was, so that I wouldn't miss any of his output before I died. But not like this... I guess time waits for none one, you never know how long any of us has.

Yeah, I still feel very sad too. I’ve yet to be convinced that you ever really get over the passing of a loved one, or find ‘closure’, whatever that may mean. shrug

I don’t think that I’m ever going to stop missing dearly departed loved ones, whether that’s a huge star like Prince or my dear Dad.

Today’s the 5th anniversary of my Dad’s passing, and whilst I’m not nearly as distraught as I was when he first passed, I still miss him terribly.

In my personal experience bereavement kinda feels like losing a part of yourself, where you’re suddenly left feeling bereft, as though there is an irrevocable imbalance in your life (I suppose maybe kinda like yin without yang?).

I find for myself that it’s an ongoing process trying to adjust over time to living with the grief, pain and loss of my loved ones, but I am no doubt always going to miss them sorely, so I am not in the least surprised to read that you (and others here) too are also missing Prince. sad

I don’t know whether this would be of any help to you, but I told myself I was going to carry a tiny piece of my Dad in my heart ‘til I see him next, and then I did likewise with Prince. That helps me cope with their loss a lil’, though admittedly of course there may very well be no literal truth in it.

In a strange kinda way I think we do carry a piece of our passed loved ones with us in our memories of them.

In any case, I think that their influence on our lives is assured, as they have helped shape who we are today. Well, that’s how I look at it, anyway. shrug

Speaking of memories, I have found that dwelling on a happy memory of a loved one can sometimes help ease the pain of loss a lil'.

When at the graveside this morning, I was remembering how Dad would let me stand on his shoes and dance slowly, whilst I was balanced precariously on his feet. Then he would gradually speed up, and I would try to hang on, ‘til eventually I inevitably came off. That sure was a lot of fun, when I was a tiny kid. smile

And those memories then made me think of how I would giggle whenever Dad would suddenly get animated and dance about in the kitchen, much to my Mom’s annoyance, especially if she was trying to cook for all us kids. Very happy memories of good times with a good man and a very good father. cloud9

I miss him. sad

One thing I did learn from Prince’s shocking, sudden passing (as Morris Day emphasized himself very recently) was not to forget to share with my Mom and wife that I love them as often as I can, and give them big hugs whenever I get a chance. hug


I haven’t extended that to friends or siblings though, in case they think I’ve gone crazy. (Too late! nuts ) I suppose that perhaps even from the very worst, most miserable landmarks in our lives, something good may still somehow come of them, however tiny a consolation that ‘silver lining’ may be.

I've come to accept it, but the sadness doesn't go away. It has changed the way I look at life. Almost like I lost a part of myself.
