The Dreaded Phone Call
I still can’t believe he’s gone. I haven’t been blogging much bc I’m dealing with the passing of one of my step parents. Coping is difficult and I’m just trying to be ok, along with my family. Tell your family & friends how much you love them. You never know when it’ll be the last time you’ll see and speak to them. Xo
My ears ring with each scream that comes through the receiver.
My hands shake uncontrollably as I try to make my way to the car.
My sister takes my call with automatic fear in her voice,
For my voice is cracking as I try to keep it together.
The tears sting my eyes as I drive to get to you.
My heart aches as I realize you’re gone.
My anger rises as I remember us asking you to stop,
But then sorrow kicks in because I know it wasn’t your fault.
We all have our demons,
But yours were more over powering.
You had your times of happiness
But in the end you just weren’t strong enough.
I forgive you for all that was said and done.
I hold no grudges toward you.
I know you’re no longer in pain, and now you can get your rest,
