It’s been a Year

SOLC: Day 23

He tossed and turned all night.

Nothing was comfortable.

Too hot, too cold.

Not enough blankets, too many blankets.

He couldn’t get settled.

His mimd was on something different.

So many memories today.

Why?  Today makes a year his mother passed away.

  1. Wow, this is so powerful and the twist at the end was not one I saw coming. Sending positive thoughts to the person who this poem is about.

  2. You know, I totally get this.

    For me, it’s usually around the time of year when my brother died. For a week or two, I am uncomfortable and moody and grouchy. And then I look at the calendar and I’m like, “oh. Yeah. that.”

    Grief is weird, is all I have to say…
