while they say goodbye

they gather to remember
they gather to cry
they gather to laugh
they gather to say goodbye
together in comfort
together in sorrow
together in hope
together for tomorrow
someday they’ll accept
someday they’ll know
beyond this moment
this time to let go
maybe they will smile
they will surely cry
as they remember
while they say goodbye

Glen's wake was today. Tomorrow is the funeral. Everytime I look at a picture of him, I can still feel him there. It doesn't feel like he's gone. And yet he is.

Colors of autumn

The woman who caused the collision has been charged... Woman cited in wreck that killed son, Gwinnett dad
