Crystal Clear

 Grief. It is a constant companion,even after 2 years and 8 months without Adam.

Most days I am happy and able to recognize the beauty and specialness of the little things in my life, a sun filled day, a warm breeze, a butterfly crossing my path, the smile of a stranger, the purr of my cat, these bring joy and contentment.

Y ou left us last fall, a year ago,

O nly memories, dreams and at times an open window.
N othing physical remains to show but,
E mpty hearts still wounded by a fatal blow.

Something will happen.
And whatever that something is,
let it happen-
even if it be tears.
The name of your child
is a magic word
to heal your heart.

Secure his path into forever dreaming,

quickly without hesitating.

Life continues here on earth mundanely numbed

by his sudden departing.

Adam had not come home the night before and was not answering his cell phone. This was not an immediate cause for concern:as an independent 19 yr old he had done this type of thing before and always spent the night at a friends house......

Somehow my motherly instincts had not registered… Continue
