Haiku Friday 10/24/08

Haiku Friday
俳句の金曜日

awake to nightmare
baby, parts, fertility
stolen in the night

one sad day per year
i'm allowed to wallow deep
while empty arms ache

marking grief's progress
this eighth anniversary
each year i'm stronger

(and for the record, i'm really doing ok, just taking some time: time to remember, time to pause and to reflect, but please know i'm fine.)

  9. As you can probably guess, I am a firm believer in marking and remembering these times and acknowledging our sadness and grief. We may become stronger with time, but we are changed forever.

    My thoughts are with you sweetheart.

  16. I'm glad your OK, it's important to take the time to remember, or to pay tribute maybe. I don't know the story, so I hope my statement isn't way off base.

  17. I know what that is like....its never something you forget. But it sounds like you have moved past it in a really healthy way, and for that, I commend you.

  18. A day set aside is important. We do it for lesser remembrances. Know that I too hold 2 days like this. Never forget those that were of you. Warm thoughts to you Maggie.
