Just one of those days



Monday 16th November

“Today was just one of those days where everything I did reminded me of you and every song I heard somehow related to you.”

As we were driving along to the cemetery today, a one minute silence was observed on the radio. The very next song to be played was ‘Somewhere over the Rainbow’ sung by Israel Kamakawiwo’Ole.

This was a song I had chosen to be played when your coffin left the church.
And the song made me cry today.
Remembering you.
Remembering your funeral.
Remembering everything about you.

For two hundred and twenty two days you have been here, in the cemetery.
Apart from three days when we were away climbing Snowdon, we have visited your resting place every single day, without fail.

You loved The Wizard of Oz, the original film with Judy Garland, and then later you enjoyed ‘Return to Oz’, with Princess Mombi.

Are you Somewhere over the Rainbow?
Way up high?


Yes, today I was reminded of you in so many ways.

So, fly high my beloved Angel, where the skies are blue.

I love you so very much.




The black cat came over to see us today, too.

  1. This is the second version of this song that has appeared in my reader today (the other by The Piano Guys).
    I love rainbows and saw some beauties in New Zealand when I went to visit my brother in 2010. We have some lovely ones across the marina too. Magical, peaceful, and beautiful.
