Letters to Tuvia#148 Swinging (2-12-16)

 

Morning T,

Last night I dreamt that I was back home swinging on the faded red wood seat that my father constructed for us, for me ,when I was the first.

Anchored securely, I remember swinging solo.

I was back there last night…

swinging solo in slow motion…

aching to reach the top, to feel invincible again.

Pumping hard with muscle memories from my 11 year-old-self

pumping to be me again-

screaming: I MISS YOU!!!!

screaming back I hear: “I’m here, with you, Bonnie Shura, always!”

relaxing into my power, even if  I can’t stay up there forever

coming back, down to earth, back down to my anchor…

deflating in silence,

breathing, breathing deeply

holding  your voice inside me.

whispering,” I will love you always, Tuvia Rosenberg, no matter where you are.

Valentine’s Day is every day for us.”

Bonnie S.

  1. Love “Valentine’s Day is every day for us.” Bonnie. My heart aches for you this weekend, and for those who make it a really special day (despite your line), it feels more than hard. Hugs to you for feeling the loss and sharing how deep it is.
