Who If Not You

This was one of Patti's favorite songs, and also one of our favorite songs.

I really lost it when I heard this song today.

The last time I felt this much grief was when my grandparents died, but this is deeper even than that.
I suppose because I have spent more time with Patti than anyone else.
All my emotions are amplified off the charts!
No doubt Patti is laughing as I attempt to analyze such a new experience.

Not trying to make light of the genuine pain but it is sort of comical in a cosmic sense.
Ok, that doesn't really make a lot of sense, I know.

I've come to think it's only times like these that things do make sense. They punch through the veil and we have to pay attention.

Still, it's grief.

USS Ben USN (Ret) said...

Aye. To describe what I'm feeling in two words:
Grateful Grief.

We all wish we could be with you, Ben. "Virtual" will have to contain the virtue of our deep sorrow at your loss.

USS Ben USN (Ret) said...

This may sound odd but I can feel you guys hugging me.
Thank you Joan.

I can only echo Joan, and offer more invisible hugs.

USS Ben USN (Ret) said...

Thanks Julie.
At first I read that as indivisible but i reckon that works too.

I'm old enough to remember that song. Beautifully sad.

The Lord is not far from any of us, which means, I think, we can't far from one another.

USS Ben USN (Ret) said...

That is so true, Mushroom.
