Still Mourning – #drabble

April 1, 2016

for Flash Fiction for the Purposeful Practitioner: Week #14 – 2016


Still Mourning

I walk the beach. Feel the waves dance around my feet. This had been our special place. Our honeymoon. Yearly anniversary visits. Or just whenever we wanted to be alone, together. Thirty years of devoted love, all gone in a single moment. An aneurysm, the doctor said. I crouch down. Pick up a seashell. And then I hear your voice again.

“Stop saying ‘It’s just the circle of life’…” I cry out to you, the waves, the man upstairs. “I want you back!”

You’ve been gone for three years. It feels like eternity. I want to go home now too.

  1. So sad that she lost her husband and has to endure the pain of his passing even three years later. Lovely story, Lori!!

  2. The ocean is a healing place to go and do whatever is needed to wash the grief away and let the good memories in 🙂

  3. This is a sad story but probably very true for some people. Mourning is a terrible state.

  4. Mourning is sometimes slow to leave. Well done!

  5. Aww, this is so sad and so well written, you almost brought tears to my eyes.
