The Anniversary

of my mother’s death is coming up April 30th. 

It will be six years since she left us.

Six incredibly long, tortuous years.

In which I have suffered more pain, darkness, sadness and numbness

Than I pray will ever happen to me again.

I don’t know how I will celebrate her life.

I don’t know how I will remember her death.

So excuse me if I seem a little strange this upcoming week.

If one moment I’m smiling

And the next, crying.

Or even lost

In the burden of my private sorrow

The heaviness of death

And the inescapable reality that is my loneliness

Which has seamlessly woven itself into

My soul’s fabric leaving me no longer naive to the wiles of life

Scarred but healing
