Commemorating My Father’s Second Death Anniversary

On a sidewalk so far away…

We saw a lot of flowers… “That’s for Papa,” my husband said. “Yeah,” I replied.

Cheers Pa! This is for you! 

We had a toast remembering all the bitter sweet memories.

I looked up, wondering if you were seeing the same sunset I was staring. Wishfully thinking we’re looking at each other at that very moment.

‘Til We Meet Again Pa… β™₯️

      • You’re not alone. I share that bond with you as well. I wasn’t able to mourn either. I had to take care of my mom, who had been totally dependent on him. I think you are a lot stronger than you think.

      • Thank you grevisangel, all that you have said means a lot and lifts up my spirit. I believe you’re a very strong person. It takes a lot of strength to take care of your mom while you’re hurting inside too. I admire you for that. My husband have to look after me during those hard times, I’ve really lost it and I saw a part of myself which I didn’t know was part of me. Sometimes, I don’t want to recall it but I couldn’t ’cause that will include remembering the whole of my dad. I guess it’s a package deal.. We remember the good times and we remember the painful part of it too, like losing our loved ones..

      • Apple that does mean a lot to me, thank you. We should all try to inspire and lift each other when someone is feeling down, in doing so, we not only help the other person, but we can get a better understanding of what it is, what it means to give. Life is equal; parts pain and joy. Some seem to suffer more pain than joy, and that is sad. I wish it was not like that, but you can’t know joy without pain, otherwise it would not be so special.
        I have not had an easy life myself and sometimes have just wanted to give up. In fact things are kind of like that now, but I keep getting up every day and going on. Writing and talking to people helps. It bonds people, and the goal, at least to me is to reach people, and hope they can relate and not feel so alone. My latest writings have all been mostly of the political nature and not so personal. I have found it easier now to write about that, but I go in cycles. I am so happy to have met you through our mutual blogs. You enrich me with your work and your comments. I am happy to have you as a friend.

      • I just said the same thing in message to you. My bio is on my page, but that is just a part of me. I am in the words. what I write about, there is a trace of me in almost all of it. There are some pieces which I challenged myself on and they were just fiction. I was experimenting to test my limits. I wasn’t very happy with some of them. I think I was listening to to much Led Zeppelin at the time.
