Gnawing emptiness eating away
Healing wounds bleeding again
Silently grieving day after day
Painful memories still remain.
Today marks the twelfth week of Mum’s demise. It is hard to believe that Mum has been gone that many weeks. Whenever I looked at photographs of Mum, it felt as if she was still here a short while ago only. I miss those familiar features of Mum’s face. I miss those familiar sounds of Mum going about her daily chores. I miss being in Mum’s presence.
