Today was a sad day Nothing special happened Except something very ordinary didn’t happen Something was missing Someone was missing
Today was a sad day It was like buying a magnum And discovering it didn’t have the chocolate And seeing everyone else enjoy their chocolate covered magnums It was ok It was fine It was just missing the best part
Today was a sad day I saw daughters with their mums And mums with their daughters And how lovely it that But not for me She should have been there She should have joined me We would have gone shopping together And it would have been just like a normal day But covered in chocolate
It’s in the everyday little things that grief shows up and tears open the scars on my heart. Even after 5 years, except now, I am excellent at hiding the pain.
