Start Over

We greeted the New Year knowing that Gill didn't have long left to live.
We knew that January would yet again be a month dominated by a death -
and so it proved to be.

Gill's funeral and memorial service was on Wednesday -
and of course we are still so very sad.

This week there have been some tough situations at school -
and immediately I think of phoning Gill - 
of telling her everything -
and of hearing all her news in return.

I miss those long, long phone calls so much.
And now we are in February -
the wind is still chill -
the ground is frozen -
I feel like the year is starting again.
