Eleven years

 I’m done mourning.

Not that I really ever did very much.

These last 10 years,

I did the public ritual

the obeisance on social media and public forums.

I chose to be respectful in my own way.

For 10 years, I paid 

that last minimal amount of 

respect that 

I felt she deserved.

And it was minimal.

But in all ways, 

I didn’t feel like I even owed her that.

I did it for my inner children 

who still loved her

and for my own peace of mind.

That’s enough.
