Horizon #writephoto

Sue’s #writephoto prompt this week.

horizon

Dear You,
Sitting here, watching the sun slowly set, I feel a sense of peace finally come over me.
It’s been tough these last few weeks. I wasn’t able to get away from anyone. I know they were being considerate, not wanting to leave me alone for even one minute, but still, sometimes you need a little solitude you know, to really put things into perspective.
This was where we always came, wasn’t it, when we wanted some time together, alone? In times of sadness, happiness, lust, and anger, we rushed here, mostly together, but sometimes we’d be hot on the tails of the other.
This view, this horizon, it’s seen a lot of our life played out, and in the end, it even bore witness to our last moments.
Who knew that final drive to our favourite spot would be our last? That, holding my hand, you’d take your final breath?
They didn’t want me to come here, but no one seems to understand that this is where I feel whole. Just sitting on the sand, staring out into the horizon, Β I know you’re here with me.
Be happy, wherever you are.
I’ll come here often, to feel you near me. I’ll scatter your ashes here, so I know your final resting place will be where your heart always was. And I can only hope that when my time comes, they’ll bring me here too, so we can finally be one again.
Love you always,
Me
❀

    Horizon has always been a positive metaphor for me but this lovely letter reveals another aspect…how moods change our words for self-solace! Wonderful way to emerge out of grief! Stay blessed Ritu.

      Thank you Balroop. I live Horizons… new starts an all that… but it just begged for a slightly different twist… I guess it reflects a little how I’m feeling right now. X

    Yes, I do know what you mean. People surround you and don’t give you any personal space.

      Thank you Robbie.. I always feel that with our mourning in our culture that you aren’t given time to grieve yourself when you are the one who loses the most… if you know what I mean…
