21 years…..

Our son would be reaching a milestone birthday next week, his 21st birthday. I can’t help but say that I’m tired, I’m tired of grieving, tired of waking every day feeling that a part of me is missing.

I have done this now for 21 years…….

Have heard it all, time is a great healer, give it time, things will get better.

Truth is my love for him will never die, nor will the ache inside me that is so heavy to carry.

I’ve ordered special orange and white flowers for him, and I’m sure I will find a lovely balloon to go with them.

Although things are hard, harder than they have been for a long time, just now, this tiger will fight on scars and all…….
