    I sit alone daily
    With my thoughts as company,
    The mind whirling with memories
    And the many nightmares.

    I sit alone daily
    Missing the life I lived,
    The love that has gone
    And feel sad at the time I wasted.

    I sit alone daily
    Longing for her touch,
    And for something that will never be
    But still wish for a sign.

    I sit alone daily
    Ruminating my choices,
    Whether to stay or to go
    Wondering how long I can simply exist.

    I sit -
    Alone,
    And daily
    I wait for my time to come.

    Time will heal
    Everyone said.
    The pain will lessen
    They also said.

    It's a nice day
    Everyone said.
    It's a bit warm
    They also said.

    It will be okay
    Everyone said.
    You will be okay
    They also said.

    It's a lovely lunch
    Everyone said.
    Nice desserts too
    They also said.

    I'm here for you
    Everyone said.
    I'll be in touch
    They also said.

    It was a lovely service
    Everyone said.
    She would have liked it
    They also said.

    But since that day
    No one has said anything.
    Their silence says more
    Than any of their words ever did.

    And in response, Mo:


    "We don't know
    what to say now,"
    they said.

    "We don't want her
    sad. If we talk
    about things,
    she will be sad. So
    maybe if we say nothing,
    things will be
    normal again."

    But normal
    is new now,
    Different somehow...
    With a hole
    that we cannot fill,
    and so, ignore.
    We'd talk if she
    raised the memories.
    It might help us all.
    We just don't want
    to tread
    to stir up things
    she wants left
    unsaid.

    :(. Of course, I'm only thinking of me. Not of others. Selfish. Thank you for the reminder.

    No, you're not selfish, sweetie...and that is certainly not what I meant...I think people don't know what to say and are afraid of upsetting a grieving person more if they say the wrong things. People clam up in the face of grief - loss is always a reminder that what we hold dear ourselves is as tenuous as whatever another holds dear. It's scary and hard for everyone. Unfortunately, people really need each other, especially at times like that, and they so often do the opposite of what would truly help. Know that I'm thinking of you. :hug:
