And so they go

Oh, B,

If whispered wishes had wings to bring you home…  How we long to hold you close for just a moment more…

The class of 2010 has become the class of 2014, transformed in what feels to be the briefest span of time…  We thought getting through your absent graduation would be the hardest task this summer, not realizing what was to come would be equally unkind… 

Letting go…two simple words which belie the actual difficulty of doing so… 

When Chris stopped to say good-bye, bags packed and eager to begin his college adventure, the weight of all you will never do crashed down upon us anew…  Each farewell to one of your friends has made us miss you even more; it seems impossible but strangely is quite true…

It is the natural order of things that they should go…  The seasons of life continue for the rest of the world, as well they should.  We take comfort in knowing there are others who don’t have to know what we know, but such consolation is fleeting.  Our hearts refuse to be soothed for long, because nothing can erase the anguish of losing you so soon… 

Still, we’re giving all we’ve got, smiling to hide the sorrow inside and discreetly wiping whatever tears may fall…

If our love was enough, you’d be here with us right now…  

Wishing you many blessings and always, hope…tg
