In Memory of Kay

Laughing. Praying. Loving.


{–Where you used to be, there is a hole in the world, which I find myself constanty walking around in the daytime, and falling into at night…}—Edna St. Vincent Millay

 

–The veil must have fallen slowly over the night….

because I awaken hurting
fucking hurting  hurting.

 

I tell Mr. Liverpool,
“My heart hurts today.”

 

And he says, “I know.”

 

How did he know?

 

I say,  “I’m extra
lonesome today.”

 

And he says,  “Lean on
me.”

 

I’m trying to.  I
really am.

 

I say, “How can I be homesick when I’m already home?”

 

And he says,  “You’ll
always be homesick for her.”

 

Always.   Always.   Always.

 

I say, “How can a person walk in the world with half a
heart?”

 

He says,  “You’re
doing it, Kim”

 

“I am?”

 

“Yes, you are.”

 

“I dreamed Kay and I were together all night long,” I say.

 

“What were you doing?”

 

“Laughing.
Praying.  Loving.”

 

He grasps my hand.
“That’s a good dream.”

 

“It was a beautiful dream.”

 

“Do you want me to go  to the cemetery with you today?”

 

“Yes.  Yes, I do.”

 

“We can hang those chimes.”

 

“Okay. It’s too damn quiet up there.  Kay needs some music.”

“I love you.” He says.

 

“Still?”

 

We both smile at the same time

 

…Knowing nothing can ever be the same.

–Chimes for Kay’s Tree……  Thank you, Dearest Kelly.  Xx

    You’re so fortunate to have a hubby to caress you through your pain.
    I’m sure Kay’s enjoying the music.

    Beautiful and heart-wrenching exchange.

    Much love to you, Kim.

        Ps. Love the chimes

    I know Kay can hear the music, Kim. Sit comfortably, Close your eyes, rest your palms on your thighs, lean back a little, relax and focus. Look into your heart….your soul….and you’ll see Kay smiling at you, as you smile back automatically. Imagine that you feel the gentle pressure of your hands on yours. She lives in your heart and spirit. She wishes you peace.

    Those chimes are lovely (Thank you, Kelly) and the basket is so pretty, just like Kay. One day, when I meet you, we’ll go visit together. I wish I had known her.

    Hugs, laughter, prayer and love coming your way….into your heart.

    Dear, Dear Blessing, Kim ~

    I thought of you and your Sister as I was digging in the earth on the North side of the house today….wondering if you might “toot” if you went by – perhaps I could feel you both – immersed in that same heart space of earth – that dimension we never thought we would find ourselves. The earth was cooling and comforting …. a sacred connection of sorts ~

    When my husband and I had our green house – we refused to fill cemetery baskets. Instead, we offered “Celebrate Life” baskets – “select the color you would like me to spray paint this basket …..no, we don’t offer ‘cemetery green’ as a color – please choose a color that fits the celebration of your loved ones life……(smiles).

    Vibrant, loud, exciting ~ screaming out loud of this precious, precious life so loved ~ a great big kiss for the world ~~~ how beautiful!

    ~ Yep, connected ~

    Love in abundance and then some more

    Kim those chimes are perfect and will ring beautifully, I have the same ones hanging in front of a window that is nearly always open and I love their sound. A friend gave them to me during a difficult time, they always make me smile.

    You are so blessed to have someone who simply stands by your shoulder, supporting you and holding you up through your pain. There are no words other gift, than “I am here” any person can give to you, that he stands by you and gives you these is so generous and so loving. I think your dreams are also a gift, also an ‘I am here’.

    Kim you are so lucky to have Mr. Liverpool! This brought a tear to my eye as I miss that connection with another person. I am happy to hear he is so supportive.

    Love you. Love the chimes. Love Mr Liverpool (in a sisterly, distant way).

    Beautiful basket. I hope that whenever you hear wind chimes, from this point forward, you know it’s Kay, blowing you a kiss.

    Beautiful… I mean a sad but beautiful article… and unfortunately, I know what you feel when you complain about feeling homesick… I’ve lost my brother 5 years ago but I always can see him entering our door for sunday dinner. I will never get used to this. never.

      ~~~Stasha,
      I’ve been trying for 2 years to describe the “Missing” in words, but it’s much too deep and profound….for even that.

    Kim,

    Last summer I visited Kay’s grave. I felt as if I was welcomed with the chimes blowing in the wind. I’m so sorry for what you are going thru, I dream about Kay too, sometimes you are there too and your family. It is very hard. I’m glad you have your precious husband and family to help you.

    Love and prays to you all. ~ Annette

    P.S. You are awesome with all you do, you are so brave.

      –Hi, Annette,
      I thank you so much for ALL of your support.

      I looooove that you felt welcomed by the chimes blowing in the wind.

      Somebody told me that the chimes music was “Kay was blowing them kisses.”

      I so looooove that!

      Xxxx

    And the next time Kay is in your dream, you can dance to the music of the chimes. What fun it will be!

    Next time you see Mr. Liverpool, give him a squeeze. When he asks why, tell him you heard the chimes. I hope you have a matching set at your house to keep your spirit company, too.

    Much love,
    Red.
