He rests and I transform

Sometimes I sit back and wonder how my world can change so quickly. How I can go from looking after my dad to no longer having one. It seemed to happen in the blink of an eye.

And yet it was years that he was slowly fading away, becoming another person both physically and mentally.

But even then once it finally happened it seemed so fast. My mind forgets the years and remembers the end. It’s the exclamation mark of my dad’s life that I remember even now.

It will be three months tomorrow and already my life looks so different. A new life is emerging. He rests and I transform.
