six months and a week

why is it the tears flood my eyes 
at the most inappropriate moments?

here i was talking to a co-worker, 
and all i wanted to do was sob.

i headed back to a private space, 
and the tears said, "no way. 
you're gonna have to fight for us."

back at my desk,
surrounded by others,
the tears flood my eyes.
and all i want to do is sob.

this cycle continues.

it's normal, i'm told
by specialists in bereavement.

yeah, o.k., right.

*hugs* Six months and a week isn't that long really. I was still like that at that point after I lost my Mom. And once in a great while it still happens, but not very often now.

you said it.

my dad died 23 years ago, and i still miss him.

someone once said to me that you may never get over the loss of a loved one, but you can get through it.

it's amazing how true that thought is.

ps: once again: I love your usericon! Did you make it? Where did you get it? I love the Seattle skyline in the back. But the woman in front is the best.

You can make one too! Icon that is.
Some of the stuff is pay stuff, but they have SO much free stuff, all mine was free. If you look on my user info page you can see the whole thing, complete with a little animation. They let you save it two different ways, one has a full body shot and one as a little icon like this one!

I'm starting to become the same way. I've gotten frustrated at not being able to cry, almost to where I could cry over it. But it only flows when I am seen by others and have no time! Agh!

yes, i can see where that would be the case. that was quite some letter!

btw: i love how the usericon of you is looking directly at me/us ... the camera. very nice, C.
