too soon after...

This will be a kind of strange post – possibly to match my mood of yesterday.

For today I found out that our Health Director's Mother passed away on Tuesday

And I found myself hating death,
the separation that it causes;
the pain of loss.

Of course I remember this way too vividly,
for me this is still fresh.
I remember the numbness as my closest friends walked me through everything, truly holding my hand.

For those of you who have experienced this you know what it is.

You also know it gives way to good memories and fondness of a life well lived….

But everything takes time.
