Gone too Soon

I haven't posted on this blog in months. My plan for the summer was to start posting new work. Instead I am in a state of shock and grief. My beautiful 21 year old son died in a motorcycle accident on June 10th. I can not even begin to tell you how hard it is just to get up every morning and face this reality. The world keeps on turning the birds keep on singing and my heart will never mend. We had the most amazing relationship. We talked almost everyday. I know that he loved me as much as I loved him. His sisters were his best friends. His smile was infectious and lit up the room. He was handsome and funny and so many people loved him. There is so much we take for granted and we never know when our lives will be shaken to the very core of who we are. There is no rewind button with death we don't get a do over. I long to hold and kiss him again, to tell him how proud I was of the man he was becoming.
