Watched a memory of you…

Sitting in the dark
(I do that a lot these days)
Thinking of what used to be
And how many things have changed

I caught the end of a familiar song
I pictured you singing very loudly
I pretended not to notice
How it was also slightly off key

I closed my eyes in the dark
And kept them shut real tight
I had a vision of you in my head
And for a moment, all was right

I have had some off days lately
They come in waves and spurts
They remind me that you are gone
And how that pain still hurts

But in these precious moments
As few as they may be
I feel your presence ever so strongly
As if you are standing next to me

I’ll take the glimpses in my mind
With the many shades of blue
And know God sent those moments
So I could watch memories of you…

I cry because you are gone, but I smile because you were here…

My name is Christina Trueblood. I am married and live in Central Illinois and am the mother of two, a daughter and son. Unfortunately, I lost my son in August 2017 in a single vehicle truck accident a couple of miles from our home. He was 24. I have documented some of my story on Facebook over this first year and have been encouraged to start a blog. I hope to help other families who have gone through loss and struggle to make any sense of it. My faith has kept me going and I believe one day, we will meet those loved ones we have lost again and it will be as if no time has passed. Until then, I want to honor their lives and know they left a mark on my life! Please follow me and share your stories.
