I know you're there
Always in my heart with me
Within 24 hours of her death my father
had her cremated and ashes scattered over
the Sierras. No one, not even my father,
went on the plane. I have always felt remorse
that she was alone on her final journey.
Kathe this is sad ....... home from Atlanta after 10 days away! Good to be back in Bend!!!ReplyDelete
Such poignant, heartfelt words.ReplyDelete
this is so sad. But for sure she is already happy and resting in the light of the Almighty Father...ReplyDelete
But in reality, part of us is alone throughout our whole lives... :)ReplyDelete
Those things stay with us, my mother did that with her mother.ReplyDelete
And yes, they are always with us in our hearts.
mmm...yes to make that final journey alone would be rather sad...i am glad she still live within your heart...ReplyDelete
Not alone...part of the wind, always in your heart. So poignant.ReplyDelete
A sad story, thanks for sharing. I'm all for cremation myself, but I'd still like a stone, which I touch upon a little in my Magpie this week: A Plot Both Great and Grand.ReplyDelete
Been there! Not that same specific There, but different versions. And it BITES! I bet you excel at listening to or counselling others in similar remorseful shoes but saying those same things to oneself somehow does not work as well...ReplyDelete
grief takes us to unknown places - sadly, great photos and thoughtsReplyDelete
This is a very poignant and very melancholy piece. The explanatory lines make your piece even more heart-wrenching...ReplyDelete
It's heart-tugging this. So quick, as well. These words always comfort me:ReplyDelete
"When I am gone, split a piece of wood, I shall be there, lift a stone and you will find me"
I can't for the life of me remember where I heard them but they're my heart connection to my mum - gone almost 25 years , too!
Always in my heart...ReplyDelete
Yes, still alive.
Kathe I am so sorry for your loss....but in that final journey we are never alone.....thank you for sharing of your heart....:-)ReplyDelete
So sad - but I am sure she was not alone - she was flying with the angels.ReplyDelete
Oh how sad, Kathe, although I'm sure she is always with you. Such poignant words. Thank you.ReplyDelete
Sorry for your regret. My mother has been gone that long, too, and I still have thoughts of 'only if'...ReplyDelete
