We met. We ate. We laughed. For a few hours, grief left us. For a few hours, we let the happy memories in, learning to celebrate life again. For a few hours, we enjoyed the unbearable lightness of being.
Perhaps these moments will come easier. Perhaps these moments will come more frequently. And eventually, we will come to terms with our loss.
We take what lessons we can, and continue to shuffle along this mortal coil.
