Exploration of grief, loss and memory in dedication to a beloved friend.
To my dearest May,
I am sorry, so sorry.
I often sit and watch the blank sky and wonder where you are.
You left me so suddenly that I think my mind is incapable in
comprehending what happened, but knowing I will never be with you again
saddens me more than I can express.
I am numb with feeling, sore with stress and if I could, I would do anything
to remove this pain and bring you back.
The thought of you and all that is to come paralyses me; stiffens my body
and causes my mind to dwell on all that I have lost. Why did you leave me?
I am reminded often of you and quickly a distant memory would strike me
and leave me blue, but I can do nothing more but wait for time to ease me.
It happened so quickly, so suddenly…you left me so suddenly.
I am struggling, for my soul is mourning.
My eyes and mind are mourning and they will forever search for you.
We were unable to say goodbye, but I need to ask this of you…
Please visit me, comfort me, show me the way, love me from afar, and
embed yourself in my work and all that I do…
But most of all please show me how to heal.
