A Chapter by N.S. Jones

Dear Grandad,

It's been almost a month since you...went away.

A friend of mine suggested that I start writing in a diary, to "just get it all out".  It felt strange writing to some...thing that doesn't reply.  It still does a bit, but when I decided to write to you instead it felt right somehow even though I know you will never write back.  I guess it's because I always felt like I could tell you anything and everything.

Just the other day, I caught myself going to the phone to call you to tell you about my day.  I miss you so much.

Sometimes I feel like you are still there.  Even now I feel like you are looking over my shoulder as I write this.

Do you remember the kid's film Grandpa?  I was watching it last night and I actually cried at the end.  I'd never done that before; I suppose it's because I now know how the little girl felt when she couldn't find her grandfather anywhere.  I feel just like she did, like I'm always looking for you and calling out to you but I can't find you and nor can you answer.  Because you're not here anymore.


Grandad, will this pain ever go away?

Today, it has been exactly 11 months since my Grandfather passed away.

"Sometimes I feel like you are still there. Even now I feel like you are looking over my shoulder as I write this."

This feeling never does go away. Thank you for sharing :)
