Death creates a swelling storm of grief within you that takes control of the person you thought you were. You lose yourself in the waves as they slowly creep in or come sweeping over you and overtake you like a little boat lost at sea.
It comes and goes in waves and it carries you away.
Some days the tide is low and you feel safe, maybe even happy. Because today, even for a moment, you’re not drowning.
Some days you struggle to keep your head above water, you’re gasping for air as the waves continue to crash down over you while the weight of your grief pulls you down.
Your grief is as vast and deep as the ocean.
