My Grief Wave

It can creep up on me,

Sweeping over, engulfing that moment.

I try to rush to the surface of the bewilderment,

Take a breath,

Questioning how that happened so silently.

Sigh, I remember now,

Life has changed as I once knew it.

I think of what Dad would want for me, what he would say,

The wave calms, leaving some ripples in its wake.
