We’re walking around with tears in our eyes. No one knows when we should hug, eat or just go to the mall. Our hearts hurt but we know he’s saying hello to heaven.
I’ve tried seven or eight times to write about the loss of my father-in-law. He passed, yesterday, after an eight-year battle with cancer. Its all seemed trite and stupid. Trifecta writing challenge just posted this: write a story entitled ‘Lost’ in exactly 33 words. The word ‘lost’ can only appear in the title, not your 33 words. http://www.trifectawritingchallenge.com/ so i wrote the first 33 that came to my head. It may not be the story they’re looking for, but the words are the truth.
Goodbye Poppy. You have my word. I’ll take care of all of these women, like you did, so well for so long.
Here’s one of my favorite songs about grief; Temple of the Dog’s Say Hello To Heaven. Just do me a favor and play it loud.
