Thursday, March 30, 2023, Slice of Life Challenge # 30/31 The half year without my father...

Today, I am being courageous enough to share a poem that is closest to my heart, it's actually not just verse. I wrote it after my father left us for his heavenly journey above.

Words can't do justice to express emotions, but still I try.

I hope some daughter, somewhere reckons with me!

P.S. It's been more than a year since my father left us, seems like yesterday to us.

I lost my father on April 22, 2022. It's been a very difficult year for me without him, especially as my mother declines with Alzheimer's. I'd like to be able to tell you that grief gets easier but I was set back on Sunday when I hugged my choirmaster who had returned after both his parents died within the same month. Reading this poem I can feel the strength of your father's presence in your life. I know it is little comfort but people have told me that my grief is a gift of a strong love. May you find comfort in sharing and connecting with others.

It's comforting and yet painful at the same time, grief indeed is a gift of strong love.

My heart goes out to you. I wish you tremendous joy ahead.
