Read an article the other day, Momma. It gave me a new perspective on the Grim Reaper. He wasn’t there to bring death, but to make sure you didn’t face it alone.
That thought gave me so much comfort.
Cut to the series “The Sandman” and the episode on death and it was the same idea brought to life in such a delicate, beautiful
manner. The portrayal of death, with a figure so kind and personable. I don’t know if they know it, but I’m sure that around the world, many have found comfort from the idea that their loved ones weren’t alone as they crossed that bridge.
It’s difficult to find solace when in grief. This series managed to give me that gift. You were not alone. My heart finds such peace believing that. I know how much being alone hurt you. I know how you always felt abandoned and unloved. You never were, but you felt so and we didn’t do enough to make you feel any different. God knows I failed you too, and I will spend a lifetime regretting it. But for now… I will hold on to the thought that you didn’t cross over to heaven without a hand holding yours the way we always did.
Miss you momma! One day lesser to seeing you.
