I just don't even know how its possible.
The moon will be full tonight, I will stand bare feet in grass and look up at it, pretend it is a magical portal to where ever you are now and I will talk to you, say all the same things I always say. I will tell you how much I love and miss you, I will ask you to come visit me and let me know you are ok...
I put pink tulips on your grave this year, they only had one big yellow, I bought that one too. I filled in with some darker pink ice land poppies. I scrubbed, cleaned, weeded, and even cut grass with scissors and gave myself blisters before I realized that it was a silly thing to do. They haven't mowed in a while and overgrown feels forgotten and you are not forgotten.
Tending your grave is very primal, it is all I have left to do for you.
I don't cry much there, sometimes not at all. That precious body keeps me coming back to honor and remember, out of respect and the need to be close to you in anyway I can but I don't feel "you" there. I feel you here at home with me...sometimes.
I posted a photo of you to Facebook. I really needed the support. People are busy and for them nine years is a long time but it only takes a few minutes to say something kind and it makes all the difference to me. The outpouring was more than I hoped for, I am grateful.
Your sister bought me Paul Simon tickets, please be there with us.
I love you sweet girl.
Come visit me tonight, wake me up, we will sit by the new fountain and you can tell me stories, I want to know all of it, everything, don't leave any parts out.
