I feel broken, yet I’m not really sure why…nothing has changed.
I have come to learn. Something that others have known far longer. I need time to grieve, for someone long since gone from my own life. I am full of sorrow for someone whose journey has ended, far too young, and I must face my own mortality with understanding I have, but do not want.
Rest peacefully, rest powerfully. Those of us who can will carry you, if only in our memories. Rest free and rest easy, and we will do the same in life.
Author’s Note: As I process the loss of someone I once spent a great deal of time with I am saddened to think of them gone. In truth they have not been a part of my life for a number of year, and passed away long before I found out. I turn to writing, not in anticipation of finding solace within my words, but in hopes that as I continue to process that something beautiful may transpire as a result of his influence and memory.
My initial reaction was to write an elegy, which can be seen here: Villanelle (Elegy) – for Kris
