I have discovered that when you wake up in the middle of the night it can be the most lonely corner of the world.
You plead with your mind to surrender your body to sleep, hoping for dreams to carry you back to where life is fluid and easy, a beautiful release from reality. Cuz it’s hard to hide sadness at 2 am. It’s a long time before the sun rises and the anonymity of the dark begs you to share your deepest pain.
Your secrets scream for release in the night stillness.
If you have been there, you will know these are the times for savoring heartache and hurt. The glorious sadness that is grief.
Take care of yourself,
