The Rising

Sometimes this grief gets the best of me.

I think I’m ok.

And then I realize that I’m not paying attention to anyone.  I’m counting down the hours again.
I’m drifting.

This feeling rises up.
Sometimes I can’t stop it.

Sometimes it’s a memory that brings it.
Sometimes it’s nothing at all.

Sometimes I can’t talk about it.

Because there is nothing to say.
I miss my mom.  I am heartbroken.

Sometimes as quickly as this feeling comes, it goes back down again.
Until the next time.
