Thank you, Linda at A Word Edgewise for hosting Poetry Friday this week.
I learned of the passing of my former husband back in June. Grief grabs you in ways that I can’t explain. I wasn’t prepared for how this news would affect me as we’d not seen each other in twenty-five plus years. I shared my raw thoughts in this SOL17 post (which I later found out was the same day he was laid to rest). His passing has reconnected me with some important people of my past and that’s a good thing.
Today would have been his sixty-ninth birthday. It’s funny how some dates stay with you no matter what. My friend, Kelly, calls them griefaversaries. For me writing is my way to process the sadness and loss.
on your grave
today’s your birthday
gone from this world, your soul at peace
