Unexpected grief

Melancholy over her death still
overtakes me in unexpected spaces.
Helping a sick sister yesterday and
hearing her lament,
'dammit! why is she dead?
I need her to take care of me!'
was like being hit by a car I
didn't even know was speeding
towards me.
After telling baby sister that I
truly understood how she felt
but I wasn't going to hug her
better because she was sick,
I cried in the car on the way home.


  1. Sometimes, its just too hard to let go I guess!

  2. AUCH! It almost brought tears to my eyes. It´s written beautifully, I loved it.
