My daddy left us forever on May 6, 2018. Some say the pain will pass. Such a platitude. It hurts. And all the exploring of the world doesn't make it go away. Because being human and being hurt are the same thing. One just gets used to that pain. It surprises you when you least expect it. When you wake up in the middle of the night. When you drive. When you walk. When you run. When you watch comedy. When you watch the news. When you swim in the sea. When you enjoy sun on your face. When your nose freezes in the wind. When you travel home. When you leave home. When you look at the moon or the clouds. When you sit. When you lay down. When you go to sleep and when you get up. Just like that. He's gone and the pain is with me. There's darkness inside of me.
