Through the glasses darkly – Chris Ritchey

Last year was the first we didn’t share -
we always shared this week with those that care -
an anniversay, your birthday and then mine-
so we would share our celebrations on one day – combined.

I wrote last year of your birthday-

They say time heals and it gets easier- it doesn’t – I cry every single day with the missing of you , the ache of my being sometimes so overwhelming I can barely stand with the weight of it and these are my days and nights since the day you died. There is no celebration of life and love in this week just the need to get through and the welcoming love of a little boy who runs at life- just like you.

But cards have been sent- not to you – not to me- Your sister has sent once more a scholarship on this day to Lorain County Community College and thank you cards have been sent to those that have also remembered your life in this way .

Your soccer buddies have come through with a very, very generous amount and a pledge to the scholarship in your name to Cleveland Institute of Art. –

A legacy on your birthday and memories of the happiness I once knew as I watched from the sidelines you and those young men in the FDNY shirts enjoying the sport – the laughter -the comraderie – mere echoes now -

A present purchased – the Miss Chris birthday present – over the top perhaps, but I don’t care and I knew you which one you would’ve chosen and as a little boy once more runs at the world – I remember
