Sorrow Walks Into the Room

Sorrow walks into the room

Holding her head up high

Yet, with a humble posture

I welcome her in

We are old friends after all

Only a thin veil separates

Me from the perils of despair

The light she carries in her heart

I feel it in my soul

“It is not over,” she says

“Only in waiting.”

I nod

I already know

She has passed on to the stars

The music of her presence never fades

The emptiness will remain

But diminish

In time

In remembrance of our mother (1942 – 2019)

May she shine with the stars

Beautiful Marie! My heart is with you.

Thank you so much, Helen! We never quite know what to expect when it finally happens. It is a relief someone we love no longer has to carry great pains – and yet, suddenly there is that great emptiness. A daily text message or a card that no longer gets physically sent out and gets a response. Rather a thought, a wish, a color of your heart – like a floating feather in the air.

Well said, Marie. I am going through the same thing with my mother, trying to prepare for that day when the end to her suffering is bittersweet.

My thoughts are with you, Helen! Mothers have an amazing impact on our lives. I never realized how many areas in our lives are motivated by our parents – the unwritten and often even unsaid ambitions, wishes, hopes that they portray. Even with the sorrow, I was blessed spending most of her last moments with her and feel that relief when her journey finally had a peaceful end.
