Onions stink! Life philosophy 101!
If you take an onion and peel it, you get a multitude of thin layers.
Layer One; the crust. What was I doing that last day I saw you? I know I was standing beside Mikes pickup, were we just getting to my house or were we leaving? Did I work that day ? Did I see you before supper or had I already eaten? When did I go in the house? I know I went to bed because I was awakened by knocking.
Layer Two; I don’t remember our conversation! Did we say more than a few words? I know you were in a hurry, Gracyn was in your truck and I was trying to make her laugh. You needed to borrow your brothers shirt or jacket? I can’t seem to recall that detail. You came out of the house smiling and seemed happy and nervous at the same time.
Layer Three; Did I hug you? Did you hug me? Did I tell you I loved you? I know you had been angry for a few weeks but I can’t imagine letting you walk away without me telling you I love you.
Layer Four through a million; What happened after you left my house? I know pieces but that’s never enough.
After all those layers are peeled away, what’s really left? The bulb , the heart of it all. You can plant it, bury it so deep that you might someday look out and see new growth sprouting from the ground.
But not always because sometimes when you plant it , it just dies and never comes back again.
4 Years in Heaven and how I pray that you have found true everlasting love and peace! As for me my love is infinite but my soul is shattered!
I love you Mark Aaron and life nor death will ever change that.
