I MISS PRINCE

I won’t even try to explain but..I miss Prince... I’ve lost loved ones in my life and that’s a life changing experience, and I’m not equating their loss to this. However I miss Prince from my life so so much...the anticipation of his next tour and seeing what I thought in my head at least for so many years was a friend of mine. Waiting for the next song..just listening to his voice and breaths the first time...then actually listening to what he was saying...
Yeah in conclusion.. I just really miss Prince...

Sorry to hear you’re still feeling this way. It’s not easy losing someone you care about in whatever capacity. I can only say it will get easier with time though it doesn’t necessarily mean you’re over it. I went through something similar with mj when he passed and was sad too when prince went, but take comfort in the fact I at least went to the welcome to Canada tour and saw him perform live, than not at all

I am with you on this. You're not alone in feeling this way. It is hard to express this to many people, because of course many people don't/won't/can't understand. Many people think it's frivolous to feel this way about someone who was "just/only" a celeb/artist with whom the mourner had no direct, tangible connection. Yet the feelings you (and I) continue to grapple with are real and valid.

Music is an intimate part of our lives. It’s there in every situation. Prince is older than me so to me had always been. The world had never existed for me without him. With a body of work like his and the sheer volume of touring and releases and videos and tidbits he was ever evolving and so we were always engaged on that ride. He was magical in concert and he had this ability to take away all of your worries for that moment. His looks remind us of that time in our life and maybe we emulated it. He was a huge part of our lives and it’s hard to explain to people who weren’t immersed in it. I often feel like I didn’t choose prince, prince chose me! Something about his music and visuals just became a part of me. Checking out the what he was doing was as regular as taking a shower or going to the shops. Prince was a way of life. And as a person we all mostly grew to love him. I understand.

I never met the man but his music became the soundtrack to my life from Controversy onward. I was always at the wrecka sto the day when a new Prince album dropped. I would rush home, slap it on the player, lay down on the floor and just immerse myself in what he had gifted us with this time. No other artist has ever touched my soul the way he did. He made me believe that things were going to be better if you just believed in it. I lost my Mom a few months before we lost Prince and I have to say that his passing was harder for me to deal with. I'm still dealing with it now. Never does a day go by that I don't think of him. I was one of those fans that waited for him to make a surprise appearance on some award show or actually perform some songs. He had a profound impact on my life and that's not something that can just be erased. I will always consider him a 'friend', even though we never met. He 'spoke' to my soul and that's what I carry with me always.

Prince and his wonderful music. The main reason for me being me. Growing up neglected ,along with later sexual and physical abuse,music is what cast it far away.Then he and his music came along and the world brightened. His passing was in between my much loved next older sister(Nov 2015), and my little brother(Feb 2017) I very much miss knowing he was somewhere here on earth. He was a part of many of us, and I miss him..his presence.

I still have his music, so I'm good and thankful for that. I miss knowing that he was on this earth, but I did not know him personally, just as a favorite entertainer of mine. He's gone now, and we just have to accept that and learn to live with it, because his time here is over, and he's not coming back.

It is OK to still miss someone, even years later. It reflects on the depth of your love and admiration. Grief has no set timetable.............

Good morning children...take a look out your window, the world is falling...

I miss him too, especially now with everything that's going on. I'm missing him more than usual.

I don't argue with people about my opinions. Scram. I said what I said.

I listen to Prince everyday, but being stuck inside has me digging even deeper into his discography. I was blasting the entire Diamonds and Pearls album this morning into my ears and it gave me so much joy. In times like these, Prince is always here for us.
