Resources for Loss

"I’ll Be Missing You" by Puff Daddy, contributed by Cristian Gaines (2023)

This is a significant song for mourning the passing of a loved one. Puff Daddy, also known as Sean Combs, was grieving the loss of his friend, Christopher “The Notorious B.I.G.” Wallace, a popular rapper in the 1990s when he wrote this song. This song became a #1 hit not only for its musical advances but mostly for its lyrical meaning. In the introduction, Combs dedicates this song to “everyone that has lost someone that they truly loved.” This tribute signals to the listeners that this song is to commemorate the life of a lost loved one. In the following verse, lyrics such as “words can’t express what you mean to me” paint how close the relationship can be for someone mourning a loss they did not expect.
