Sorrow is the Sea

"The world looks different now. The pinks have become purple, the yellows brown.

Sometimes I think that happiness is over for me. I look at photos of the past and immediately comes the thought: that's when we were still happy. But I can still laugh, so I guess that isn't quite it. Perhaps what's over is happiness as the fundamental tone of my existence. Now sorrow is that.

Sorrow is no longer the islands but the sea."

  1. There are no words... it is so very unfair and devastating what you and your husband have been through. All I can is that know we are all listening to you... listening to you share... crying as we read the story of your last day with your son... sending out love and thoughts even if we don't officially *know* you
