Too Young

It’s sad to think about mom being alone… It’s sad to hear her talk about selling our home… It’s sad to hear her say she’s going to downsize and get rid of things….

It’s sad because… Well… Because this shouldn’t be happening…. This shouldn’t be happening at all….

Dad was too young… Mom is too young… My parents were supposed to grow old together… They were supposed to have grandchildren to together… My kids were supposed to call them grandparents…

And I hate the thought of mom getting rid of things… Dads things… Their things…

And I know they’re just things… But couples are supposed to grow old together… Especially when you’ve been married for 30 years…

It hurts me to know mom and dad built a life together… A family together… A home together… And now… Well now it’s been disrupted…

Now mom won’t live out the rest of her life with dad… And dad won’t get to see his grandkids…

Mom said she was looking forward to growing old with dad… And I just hate that life for them… For all of us has been disrupted so abruptly..

I hate that my parents won’t be able to grow old together…

It just feels so unfair…

And I don’t like to hear my mom cry… Because it’s just so wrong… It hurts me… But it’s reality… My reality… Her reality… Our reality right now… And we just have to live in it…

And I know one day it will get better… That our hearts will continue to heal as we live… But in this moment it sucks… And I hate it…
