I’d have to say that this has been one of the most difficult weeks I have had in a long time. Not only have I been grieving, which is like trekking through an unknown jungle – you don’t know what it’ll do to you – but I was also going through an interview process for a new job doing custom alterations. About two hours after Rosey passed on, I got the phone call asking me to come in. Since then, I have accepted the position and had my first shift yesterday.
In a way, I feel as though Rosey passed on in order for me to really start becoming the person I need to be, and who I always wanted to be. I miss her so much and love her with all my heart, which is quite evident through all of these poems and excerpts, but I am excited and intrigued to see what the world has in store for me now.
“When a chapter ends, a new one begins.”
Here are my poems and excerpts from Week Three:
A sniffle. And a cough.
My tiny little friend, I worry about you often,
but especially now, as you sputter little garden hose & hack up slime.
Poor baboo. Get well soon.
Cannot write tonight, because without you, I am nothing.
….and there you were.
Rubbing on me.
Gods, it felt so real
Today was a lot of firsts,
But I know now that you will always be here.
I love you ❤
Counting the days I survive
Hoping one day
I don’t need
to count the days away.
…Thank you for visiting me in the night. Please don’t stop.
So much laughter. So much new.
“When one chapter ends, another begins.”
I know you are with me always.
I love you. ❤
A Dust in the darkness,
a walk alone.
Through the sands,
toes covered in sand,
White dress dancing
And a calm.
Thanks for stopping by and having a read. Lots of love.
Stay safe and stay insane.
