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

Thank you for this, Shawn. I’m experiencing the loss of a loved one. I can relate.
My condolences, Zina.
Well said. Just a few words that say so much. Sorry for you pain.
