photograph
it is so unfair, after 10 years I can't get it through my head my brother is gone. In a totally unrelated incident last week they were playing the memorial concert they did for George Harrison, Ringo Star sang the sone Photograph and it sent a chill down my spine, they didn't play the whole thing so I tracked it down and just played it, and burst into tears. Mum and dad are collecting things and we will start on an album, I can see a lot more crying as I do it, I don't think grief subsides i think it just gets things draped over it and every now and then the layers fall away and it hits you full in the face again and you realise something precious was stolen from you

Photograph

Everytime I see your face,
It reminds me of the places we used to go
But all I've got is a photograph,
And I realize you're not coming back anymore

I thought I'd make it,
The day you went away
But I can't take it,
Til you come home again to stay
I can't get used to living here,
While my heart is broke, my tears, I cry in vain
I want you here to have and hold,
As the years go by and we grow old and grey
Now you're expecting me to live without you
But that's not something that I'm looking forward to

Everytime I see your face,
It reminds me of the places we used to go
But all I've got is a photograph,
And I realize you're not coming back anymore
Everytime I see your face,
It reminds me of the places we used to go

Oh Alli how sad for you to have lost a brother.

The description you gave of grief is so perfect, it's exactly how i feel about losing my dad, when you do allow yourself to feel it, it's not really tempered by time.

Beautiful beautiful photography too - glad i found your blog.
