I Felt You Today

Yesterday as I sat at my desk, I was suddenly overwhelmed by your presence and your perfume enveloped me. I wondered why you were here, what did it mean? Your visits don’t scare me anymore, like they once did, but they do make me curious and sometimes, nervous. I remember it was like that after my heart surgery, hooked up to all of those machines, high on morphine, still on a ventilator yet you overwhelmed me. I felt your hand on my shoulder, your voice in my head, encouraging me.

Gosh we used to have so much fun, I miss those days!! Remember the time we were driving down the interstate, listening to that comedian? We started laughing so hard that I had to pull the car over and stop because I couldn’t see for the tears??!!

Or how about the first time you drank Long Island Iced Tea? You drank so many, my God you were drunk and funny as Hell!!

All of our heart-to-hearts, we had such deep, personal conversations. You gave me a compliment many, many years ago, that to this day is the best compliment ever….when you said you wished you were more like me.

I regret that I couldn’t be the friend you needed me to be during your divorce, I just couldn’t take sides. I hope that over time you were able to forgive me, although I know you were resentful for a very long time.

For what it’s worth though, as bitter and ugly as that divorce was, Dad came to your funeral for us girls and told us that you died with dignity and he had a lot of respect for you for that.

So yesterday I felt you, smelled your unique, custom made perfume, and knew you were at my desk. And you were in my hospital room. And you've been in the car with me while I was cruising down the highway, more than a few times. Suddenly there for a few moments, then gone again. For fifteen years you continue to pop in and out, always announcing yourself in the same way. And always when you leave, I’m left with the same thought….I miss you Mom.

That is great - and must have been cathartic and difficult to write. Well done
