August 13, 2013
We do meaningful things
and visit a meaningful spot.
It is his day.
A day for rituals
I think about what Liam's life means to us
and all the ways he's changed me.
I remember why we are right here right now
and the little boy who is not.
In Toronto, candles are lit
and two balloons hang next to his picture frame.
Photos of Liam are posted on his aunt's Facebook wall
and messages of remembrance are exchanged.
Justin shows me each one
and my tender heart swells.
He is remembered and missed and loved.
Liam is gone
but he is very much a part of each and every day.
He is a part of us.
His story is weaved into his brother's,
I carry one of my sons in my arms
and the other one in my heart.
August 6 is the anniversary of our first son's birth.
Liam would be two years old now.
I miss him so much.
I love him so much.
