We each have a sound track to our life. Songs that we may only hear once but at a time where we will remember them forever. Maybe a song that we have heard a thousand times but then it plays at a time where it leave a bigger impression.
Today is Father’s Day. I spent today at my lake house. I was packing up to leave when the song AVE MARIA came on. I turned it up and tears started welling up in my eyes.
The most beautiful version of this song was played at my Grandfather’s funeral. I was a pallbearer.
Now every time that song comes on, my heart breaks a little. I can feel the cold metal of the coffin in my left hand. I match my brother’s pace – staring at his back. I can feel my chest constricted with grief.
I miss you.
