Wish You Were Here

Time has flown by in many ways this month. Being busy means that time has not dragged. In a few days I will be with my family in North Wales…and then Cheshire.

However…time has been strange with regards to Goldfinch. I can still picture him wrapped up in my big snuggly robe after a shower. I am still warmed by his embrace. I still find comfort in the warmth of his hand caressing my hand. Yet…time is cruel, for it feels like many months I have been without him. The time has dragged in that respect. I miss him. I miss his text messages which always excited my day.

I wish he was here. I wish he were near. However, I don’t begrudge him enjoying Australian summertime one bit. I want him to be happy.

I know it is different…

…in the musical “Phantom Of The Opera” Christine is singing this song to her beloved father when she visits the graveyard where he is buried.

However, I have been singing these words about Goldfinch:

Wishing you were somehow here again

Wishing you were somehow near

Sometimes it seemed if I just dreamed

Somehow you would be here”

    1. Aaaaaw Sadje – that is very nice of you to say!
      I am convinced he is having a great time out in the Australian sunshine. He will be loving every moment of being on his home turf, exploring all the places he loves and catching up with all the people who love the bones of him!

  1. My heart goes out to you! I am glad you found the courage to love. It is a big risk. It is so worth it even when it does not go the way you desire. I hope you can find some peace with your family. I have family that lives in Cheshire. Be good to yourself.

    1. Thank you Roland…
      Goldfinch has enriched my life…I will always be grateful to him.
      My family are spread across England, Wales and overseas.
      Next week I will be with my youngest sister in North Wales for a few days and then heading for Cheshire where my parents are. Family from Lancashire, Merseyside, Scotland, Derbyshire, Wales are all heading to a location in Cheshire where we can spend some time together.


      1. I will! So far this week I’ve made a whacking great cheesecake, cinnamon rolls, homemade bread, coconut cream pie and 4 lots of caramel chocolate chip brownies AND a big pile of peanut butter and chocolate fudge. I’ve promised to make a lemon cake tomorrow.. I don’t know where they put it all!
