One Year On


In French you don’t say “I miss you”  You say “Tu me manques” which means “You are missing from me.”  Don’t you love that.

I know that 16 August is just another day, but for me it will always be memorable.

One year ago today my love breathed his last breath and I told him Goodbye.  It’s amazing how the time moves on, things change, new people come into your life and yet the memories of those who were once in your life and now are no longer still remain.

So many happy memories of our very short time together; short but a time filled with love and laughter that I shall never forget.  Thank you my darling for being in my life for that time.

And of course, Mary Oliver says it so well.

“Still, what I want in my life is to be willing to be dazzled—to cast aside the weight of facts and maybe even to float a little above this difficult world.”
