Crooked Smile – The Weepies

On this day, seven years ago, I buried my grandmother. That was the last time I set foot in Ontario. I have no plans to return.

Today, I will remember my grandmother and all that she taught me. I will remember her smile and her kind voice. I will drink tea in remembrance of her, as I do every day.

This is also a beautiful song if you are feeling introspective. So listen to it. Enjoy it. Love it.

Mindful Musings #101

Mindful Musings

It’s been seven years.

Seven years ago, today.

It’s been longer than that since I’ve heard your voice

The illness took you from us.

Never again will I hear you call me

My girl.’

Never again will I sit with you

While we drink tea in the morning light

Of your kitchen.

You gave me so much

And I fear I gave nothing in return.

It’s been seven years.

The hurt still gnaws at my heart.
