Working Through "It"


I wear his t-shirts to bed.
One I've yet to wash.
I hold it near me each night, to feel him close to me.
Weekends are the worse.


Peace

This is exquisitely beautiful and touching.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I know a bit about the journey of grief myself. It's an odd, confusing, mysterious process, but you will make it through. As someone else said, I'm also sure that he is watching over you.

You've made me cry again. Loneliness and grief are a heavy burden to bear, and I'm sorry.

Akelamalu said...

I so feel for you honey. I just can't imagine the pain you must be feeling. xx

The Mama Bear said...

All I can say is that I would be doing the same. I think to the fact I snuggle Allen's pillow or wear his t-shirts when he gone for a weekend...I can't imagine where you are at.
Mama Bear hugs sweet one.

How terribly sad and painful. :(

Sunrunner said...

I'm so sorry, Odat. I wish there was something any of us could do to make your grief easier to bear.

Open Grove Claudia said...

((Hug)) I know it's not as good, but maybe it will help.

The Boy said...

Yeah, I remember that. There is something about scent that is overpoweringly calming. Even now, all this time passed, with a new love in my life, I have a shirt of hers tucked away for that once in a blue moon when the memories overtake.

Dear Odat,
I am so sorry for your loss. I came in to wish you a Happy Birthday and read that you are grieving. My heart goes out to you. I lost my Mother a year and a half ago and I know alot of the pain you are feeling. If you ever need a soft place to fall, you can visit me at my blog. I am a good listener and am always willing to lend a shoulder.
May Our Lord hold you close and comfort you like a warm comfy quilt. There are no easy words in times like this, so I will just say to you...Hugs...
