I visited your “last resting place” today. The things us humans do to hold on, in order to let go.
I sat on a cold concrete slab, the wind blowing in my hair, watching the waves fall into each other and roll onto the beach. Much like our friendship came to be.
There was a small chill in the air… proof that you are not here. You provided shelter and warmth in so many beautiful ways.
I feel the sand, somehow believing your ashes have clung to the grains, your spirit blowing in the wind…. but in my heart, 16 years later I know you are as close or as far as I allow my heart to go.
I saw your face, your wild, long hair playing in the wind, your loving, smiling eyes as the sun plays on the water. It’s beautiful here. I can see why you loved it.
I gathered a few stones and shells to remember you till we meet again, and then threw one stone back in the sea to remind you of me. I hope the rocks will continue to shape and form me with growth with a nudge from you.
I hear your Mom is in poor health, unfortunately I was not allowed to see her today. I am sure she is in good care.
I wish you sunsets in beautiful vibrant colours and promising light as the sun rises every morning ….and then “Forget it…” but remember I love you, as I know you did me.
