Daddy…

My dad is no more…

It’s been a little over 2 weeks and we move on…

life goes on… it doesn’t stop, time doesn’t freeze… the rest of us, still alive, have so much to do… jobs to get back to, families to attend to, daily mundane chores to be done, babies to be taken care of – unaware and blissfully ignorant of the loss they’ve had, moments to be shared – happy and sad, tears and laughs, situations that make you return to the land of normalcy…

But in the midst of all this are flashes and memories and thoughts and recollections – of scenes and words and days and events, which flit past the mind, un-announced and un-invited – they leave me mostly sad, but also afraid – for what happened and what might happen… and regrets for what could’ve been better.

Now I know first hand, how it feels to have a personal loss… and I wish, albeit uselessly, that no one I know should feel what I am feeling…
