Love and Loss

Today I visited my mother's sister, Heather.
Her husband recently passed away after sharing her life with him for over 50 years.
Intense grief is probably the cruelest of all human emotions.
She came within a whisper of death's door herself.
Her heart had shattered into a thousand pieces.

I have experienced grief to a degree.
I have lost loved ones over the years and can identify with heart-ache.

I have not experienced grief in its purest form however.
I have not lost a child. I have not lost my life partner.
I fear with every fibre of my being if or when that day ever comes.

My beautiful aunt is taking one day at a time.

It's hard for her though.
Really hard.

I love you Auntie Heather. xxx
