Another Loss

Another loss to remind me how short life really is.. A text message received today still running through my mind, informing me of the passing of my aunt. Admittedly, I didn’t reach out to my dad. I want to linger in this sense of denial a little longer. Speaking to him will surely make it all the more the more real. I want to hold out as long as I can. Sometimes, I can be the rock, the pillar, my family needs me to be – but not today. Not right now. Living across the country, if only for now, I will choose to hideaway.

We’re faced with another heartache. Another loss. Another tear to shed. Another reminder that life is short. Another question of did I witness? Did she really know? Was she ready? As I sit here and wait and wonder, I hideaway just a little bit longer…
