Hi, it’s Day 17 of the #BlogFlash2012 challenge and today’s prompt is Graveyard. I’m dedicating this post to my wonderful parents.
I walk into the graveyard with mixed feeling; the grey clouds overhead matches my mood.
I reach their gravestone; sorrow conflicting with a sense of peace within me. I gaze at the grass; wooden boxes holding their remains too deep to be seen. I raise my eyes to the inscriptions forever engraved in my brain; a solitary tear rolls down my cheek.
I know they aren’t there – only their bodies – their spirits roamed free in a better world, one without pain where they’ll be forever young.
I feel them, guardian angels beside me, giving comfort, love, strength. Forever in my heart.
Inscription 1 (on my Dad’s headstone)
Loving you was easy, we did it every day, losing you is a heartache, that will never go away
Inscription 2 (on my Mum’s headstone)
A bouquet of beautiful memories, sprinkled with millions of tears, wishing that God could have spared you, if just for a few more years.
