The Road to Sixty – Day 104
The kids and grandkids are gone. Lucy the dog is lying in her chair, sometimes with an occasional whimper.
I don’t have the TV on, there is nothing really to watch.
So I pull out my Bible, read words that give me comfort, joy and peace.
I write…a lot. Some things people will read, some are in my private journals.
I pull out a video, a voice mail, just to hear your voice.
But I don’t really need them.
Your voice is in my heart, I can hear every word, phrase.
I see every mannerism, with the photograph of my memory.
I am no different than anyone else who has lost a loved one.
I reflect…I cry…I laugh.
I am happy…I am sad.
Sometimes I’m not okay…but I will be.
It’s okay to be quiet…for it is then that I know that God is still with me.
