* * *
She was a wife.
It was a role that she was proud of.
She and her husband had eight wonderful years together.
They had a wonderful wedding, a little starter home and went on adventures.
They became parents together.
They full-filled their vows to each other. Till death do they part.
Now she is a widow.
Though she is among friends, she is alone.
She has been open about her grief but few people know the real her.
Her true self.
They just see her as a widow and a mother.
Most people aren’t interested in knowing the real her. It’s easier to just keep seeing her as the person they once knew.
She is too boring. Too ordinary.
She misses her husband. Every cell in her body aches for him.
But sometimes she is tired of just being a widow.
She is no longer the person she once was but she can’t go back.
Too much has changed.
She isn’t sure who she is becoming or where she is going.
All she knows is that she doesn’t want to stay where she currently is and that it is impossible to go back.
