Days fill the mind with many preoccupations but the nights leave the mind free to think… and it is when sadness comes to consume your being. Yes, there are moments during the day that grief threatens to come to the fore but slips away as worries of the day tend to divert the mind back to the here and now. It is during the night as the body prepares to rest that the heart makes known the presence of pain and sadness. Then the tears come. I grieve for my father and I know I will grieve him until the day I die. I’m missing him everyday.
Let me share with you a quote from Edna St. Vincent Millay that I especially like.
“Where you used to be, there is a whole in the world, which I find myself constantly walking around, in the daytime, and falling in at night. I miss you like hell.”
