there is no map for grief

this I know

grief is water

raging the chambers of the heart

grief is noise




grief is the absence of touch

the ache of memory inside skin

grief is silence

where beauty dwells

with love

    Dear Alethea, so very beautiful…. you touch the universal and the deeply personal all at once. Picturing Daisy with a halo of light, inside your heart, roaming free!


    • Thank you, my friend. I knew it would be hard, but I suppose one can never be prepared. Yes, my heart. When she passed I felt her presence there immediately. It was so strong and filled with love. The kids did too, it was quite beautiful. She’s everywhere and nowhere and that knowing brings out the extremes of emotions in me. ❤
