grieving


grieving

for mam

for peter

colum

happy dad

simplicity

ability

assumption

entitlement to be able

health

choices

friends who left me

painlessness

sleep JUST natural not pain and drug induced.

youth and energy – but these i replaced by age and wisdom

shape

control of my shape

innocence

the wife i was before she became his patient

belief in people

humanity

trust

grieving is ongoing

background to living.

but we learn from it in ways we couldn’t see at the time

scars are marks of battle won

time does not take away grief.

we learn to make some pain experience

irony
