A half-stitched scar

I am reading so many books at the moment on grief, I could open a grief library. Literally. My book shelves are full of them. Amongst the plethora of pages and quotes, some quotes stick and resonate more than others. The quote below by Elizabeth Jennings is spot on.  I know the pain of losing Eddie will never go away. Time may pass but like a half-stitched scar, I will never truly heal.

Time does not heal

It makes a half-stitched scar

That can be broken and you feel

Grief as total as in its first hour

(Elizabeth Jennings)
