Today I saw my sister she managed to talk to me today of Zena, she said “she had been to her Grave today to place her anniversary flowers there. Yet when she got there among the flowers there lay a card to Zena from a school friend from her past.”
It read “each year on your anniversary I have been putting flowers on your grave yet this year I have left a card with all my love inside for now I am 35 years old married with 2 children I always will remember you within my heart peace for always”.
It seem for the last 11 years she had visited her grave, she carried so much guilt of that fatal day. She felt somehow responsible for the car that came your way and ran you over and she did not manage to save you.
I looked into my sisters eyes I saw her eyes filled with tears i wanted to hold her and tell her
I UNDERSTAND HER PAIN.
Yet Grief is something inside of us, we deal with in our own way, I know that she carries guilt for being on Holiday that day and had to get an emergency flight home from Spain.I feel till she understands that evenin realityif she had been home she couldn’t have stopped the accident
For it never happened in the home
One day when i know her pain is not so great and know that i can Hug her without making her cryeven more. I will tell her that I LOVE HER so she knows she is not alone, untill that day my thoughts will always be with her.
