Memories.

It is this feeling that I can't rationalize, I can't negotiate. Never ever does it ebb. When I think it has, something totally random brings memories flooding back. A stupid grey car like the one we had. Scrambled eggs like the ones you used to make. Memories so little and not really vivid but the pain, never once dulling.

I miss you, Mom. I wish I had known you more, I wish I had known you longer.

I'm so sorry. I think our longings for our parents never leave us no matter how long nor how old we become

I feel the pain in this and I do share it. Lost my mom in 2005 and there are those times I wish for one more conversation.

Remembering her in the smallest of things demonstrates the depth of your love for her.

Sometimes you never realize what you have until it is gone. Well done with the concise memories and emotion.
