A Thread of Grief

Both my parents have been dead for several years, but I miss them terribly tonight.  I long for their voices, their assurance that all will be ok, I need to hear their laughter.
Most days now, life goes on.......I think of them, I miss them.....but every once in awhile......I yearn to see them.....that is how I feel tonight.
The hole, the empty spot in my heart that their passing left......seems new and fresh tonight.
Nights like this......I think.....so this is what being an adult feels like.
I know that this will pass.......the lump in my throat will go away, the feeling of helplessness will fade.......but tonight, it is all too real.
A tiny thread of grief has worked its way through my heart, a reminder of those I loved, and the realization
that life goes on.
Time for a cup of tea
Goodnight, Sweet dreams

  4. It's natural to grieve even after a long time. Parents will always be part of us. I hope today has been easier for you. Be kind to yourself this weekend, Jilda, do nice things. There's lots of people sending love to you.
