Mourning - My Way (in the memory of my late father)


M
 

Blogging from A to Z [April 2015]

 

 
 
 
Among a thousand other
learned behaviours
is also mourning
 
the ceremonial tears
the loud cries
of non-acceptance of loss
 
but we both knew
from the start
I am a non-conformist
 
the tears didn't come
when they all waited
the loud wailing
was missing
 
I smiled
because I was
remembering him
 
I have cried
and held his photo
for hours
and then made myself
his favourite tea
 
Now I know
he wanted me to mourn
as he wanted
me to live
always
- my way.
