It seems the last few things I’ve written have been because of KLove being in the background here recently. It’s good to have uplifting songs playing.
Last night a song came on that I’ve heard before, but for some reason the words really struck me this time. The song begins like this:
To everyone who’s lost someone they love
Long before it was their time
You feel like the days you had were not enough
when you said goodbye
How many times have I heard, or thought to myself for that matter, that Mari’s time was too short. She didn’t have enough time on this earth. She was too young. Those words above really say it all. I cried as I listened. I’ve been doing that a lot the last few days. It’s like Mari is weighing on my mind right now. I’d have thought this would’ve happened more in July instead of a month later. I guess the missing of someone gone has a mind of its own and decided when the time is to grieve some more.
While I’m sad in those moments as I sit crying I’m grateful to have them as it means Mari is still very near to me. It’s not that I ever thought she wouldn’t be but it just reaffirms my love for her and how much I’ll always miss her.
The chorus of this song speaks volumes for what we need to do when we are at our lowest:
My hope is that in some little way this may have uplifted you as it has me.
