WP Photo Challenge Gone, But Not Forgotten

Two years ago this weekend was the tipping point in my Moms health. I had talked to her about a performance I was in the following week, and though we had discussed this months in advance, I needed to know if she was still all right with it since it would mean me not being at her side when the “time came”. She was because she was a woman of her word. She also knew I would also follow through with my commitment as well. It was just a couple of days after the last performance I arrived at my folks house with The Bride to set with my Family as Mom finished this chapter of her Journey. The following is the Memorial haiku/short poem I wrote for our next chapter(s) and used one of my photos as the back drop.

Little did I know that in less than a year later my Pops would join her. Below is a photo I took of my mom’s dog Little Bit as she transferred her care to my Pops after my Mom passed. I think the photo it is a fitting conjuncture of the both of them as one, though one was not any more. As The Bride and I start a new chapter in our lives we look at the future with new eyes, ones with more wisdom I think, because of those who have come before. Yes they are gone, but they are not forgotten.

Little Bit does not have to stand vigil with my Pops at  Mom's side anymore. Rest in peace Mom.

I am a 59 year old guy who is asking questions about life like "what does it all mean?" and " how come hair will not grow on my head but grows real fast on my ears and back?" you know the deep stuff. I believe in Jesus Christ and that He died for all. The rest I am still working on.
