Appa
I see you in your mother's eyes
I see you in your brother's walk
I see you in your sister's smile
I hear you in your son's voice
I wish I could see you again

Akka,

You are seeing him just about everywhere and everybody and in that sense you have immortalised him in your heart.

I realise the void is too huge to be filled up by any amount of condolences and words, but then its one of the grief of being human and the pain is only too fresh in me as I lost my father just a few months back.

Be brave.

Your simple lines touched me very deeply. My deepest condolences to you as well as Hari. Grief from losing a loved one doesn't always heal with time as the cliches say, but the spirit of the loved ones we have lost lives on in those of us left behind.

Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love - time is eternity. I hope you find peace and all your memories are wonderful ones.

I catch fleeting glimpses of him when I look at family members and sometimes when I look at myself in the mirror.
