    So hard to say what’s in my heart. better to just let things rest unsaid. life is just a quick trip around the universe. no point in spoiling everyone’s fun.

  • Rocky commented on the post, funeral 8 years, 4 months ago

    I watched the endless stream of cars go by, and all i could think of was how my mother used to say how lucky it was to see a funeral. I think she always said that because it was because it wasn’t her funeral.

    It was on the tip of my tongue. I could just see the outlines of her face in my memory, and then it was gone. Vague thoughts emerged, randomly.

    The more I try to forget, the more details rise to the surface.

    I’m lounging in my favorite Winnie the Pooh jammies. I can smell bacon and eggs coming from the kitchen. My only hope for the day is that the biscuits are made from scrath. Sunday crossword puzzles keep me busy.

    The hummingbird dashed about my head watching. The cat sat on a low wall watching. The dog lifted his head watching. I couldn’t hear a thing, but now I also was watching.

    She sat in front of the mirror. We were already running late, but I watched her – a moving meditattion – I watched, as I did every night. Always, I wanted her to stay. I waited.
