Sitting here wasting time. At half past midnight.
I don’t want to be awake but don’t want to sleep.
Songs going through my mind.
Songs I used to love.
Songs we played at the funeral.
Heard one in a store yesterday. Heard another in a commercial tonight.
If I ever plan another funeral, I’m choosing hymns I hate and songs that are extremely unpopular. Songs that are never sung in church. Songs that no radio station plays.
Hearing songs from your loved one’s funeral in commercials or while shopping can hit you in the gut and cause waves of painful grief to overcome you.
Good night, my friends. Many of you know exactly what I’m talking about.
