I wrote this a long while ago, and just recently found it.
We cry for things that in comparison to other things seem so miniscule. All those times being sad about relationships failed, money or general disappointments are put in perspective.
Hard to grasp that the world keeps going, moving forward when tragedy strikes. People keep working, smiling, laughing, crying, while in my eyes its as if the world has stopped.
How do you say good-bye? What do you say? How do you move on knowing that person is only going to be in your memories and not in your physical world.
I wrote this almost 12 years ago, when my mom had past. Finding this has once again reminded me of how to keep life and values in perspective.
