Thoughts on Grief XVIII

My friends are the best

They point out (with love)

that

It’s time for me to start living

Have fun

Stop hiding

Do things

Go places

Take control of my life

Laugh

And find myself again.

.

That Lawrence would be

Upset that I was sad

All the time

Instead of celebrating

That he is where we all long to be

.

That being tired

and not sleeping well could be

a sign of depression

(Not depressed- just grieving,

but thanks)…

.

However, I am ready

to have fun

Stop hiding

Do things

Take control of my life

Laugh

Find myself again and

Find my new normal.

.

I will say it

Until it becomes reality

.
