a year is a long time

it was grey today,
inside my heart
and outside my windows.

how can
one year
seem like three hundred
and sixty five days
and only one at the same time?

I looked at pictures,
visited her grave,
offered up prayers,
shed my tears,
and honored her memory.

A year can be so long and so short. You are in my thoughts.

wish i was there to hug you and let you know that you're in my thoughts and prayers. a year is indeed a long time without your dear friend.

a year does seem like forever and a vapor all at the same time. i have to admit that time had caused me to forget. not kris, but how long it has been that you have been without your more-like-a-sister-than-friend. in remembering, there is great saddness over the loss, but even greater gratitude for her presence in our lives.

thank you for showing your heart once again. it is beautiful and deep. as was your friendship and love for kris.

While I am a new reader and don't know who you lost, it clearly was someone important in your life. I recently read a book (Cutting for Stone) and it has many insights to the human condition. One passage was that when someone passes away that person's suffering ends but the suffering just begins for those left behind. I'm sorry for your loss and it might not seem so now but in time it will hurt less.

sending big hugs to you krisyn.
i have only lost one good friend - it was many years ago and i think about her often. A year is a long time but it can feel like only yesterday. Hope you were able to recall all the good times that you shared.
