It will always hurt,
the pain will never go away.
Knowing what is known now,
Knowing the hope given for the future,
replaces some of the hurt, with hope.
Memories are never to be forgotten,
yet the past is the past.
Dwelling on what can't be changed,
hinders the continuation of life.
Picking up the baggage will take some time.
Moving on all together will still be the hardest thing to accomplish.
But when the final bag is put on the truck,
and all that has to be done is to drive away,
I will smile, reach over to the dial, and turn on the car radio.
As I pull out of the driveway, the radio will be at its highest,
because looking back, I'll be able to say,
That the music had never faded away.
Thank you for a sense of peace and hope for the future.
Never forget that I, as well as Mom, is always here.
The friendship may have died,
but the sisterhood lives on forever,
even if spoken words are never shared between.
