It’s Inevitable We Become the Parts of Other People that Touch Us Deeply
It’s been 46 days since I last saw you. It’s been 46 days since we woke and you were gone. We spoke the night before. You were angry, resistant and unforgiving. I asked for a truce, if only for a few minutes so we could hug one another and hold on to the past 21 years that will always be a part of us. We both cried.
Somehow I knew, maybe not that you were going to vanish exactly, but I knew our bond was becoming unglued. I couldn’t fix your broken pieces then and I still can’t now, but as your mother I must believe the morals and values I instilled in you while growing up in someway will protect you and guide you.
After 21 years of love, support, acceptance, nurturing and unconditional love, I didn’t even get a goodbye. You left in haste and I undeserving of the truth.
On this day, Mother’s Day, I am grateful for all the lessons I’ve learned and all my children have taught me.
