Today you would be 101

Three months gone

Grief still takes me by surprise

a slice of pain hidden in the guise

of a song, or a day, or a vision.

I still see your sparkling eyes,

I hear your voice saying my name,

You became a hundred and one

times a hundred and one memories

and grief still weeps off each one.

    My hand is on my heart…no words. Thank you for sharing your tender heart, for giving us all a chance to feel a little more, to realize how closely we are all linked through our experiences of joy and loss.

  2. So many gifts were given. None can be taken away, even though the giver stands behind the veil. My heart to yours, Shawn.

    No matter how long passes, the remembrance will remain though maybe there will be more times where you have a wry smile at pleasant memories than tears for the loss. I hope the smiles and memories come soon to ease the pain Shawn.
