There was Yesterday, And Now Today

Time is short.
Shorter than we realise;

Shorter than we expect.

Yesterday plans were made...
... today I am told I will never see him again.

Outside the midday sky is grey
hours passed in a numb void
and unrelenting is the rain.

Goodbye dear friend, it was an honour and joy to know you... the day our families became one when my daughter married your son is one of the happiest days of my life. Rest in Peace

epitaph. Yes, life is shorter than we imagine. We always think there is tomorrow. ~ Geez.

My chatroom is taking a break
if you have ideas about times that
are convenient and subjects
to talk about, contact me and we can discuss it
Thank you for your participation.

Yes we do.

My family are in grief and shock over the suddenness of his passing.

...this is for Jess Tapper?


I don't know Jess Tapper.

My family have lost a beautiful caring member of our family this week.

Heartfelt condolences for Jess Tapper & family as well.

An emotional read, feeling definitely prompted by the piece.
