children are worried about you. You've been doing nothing
except pacing about the house and garden during the day,
and flipping through your photo albums late into the evening.
You've stopped going to church.
kids have finally convinced you to get out of the house
and have dinner with them. But you insist on going somewhere
new. How could you go to your favorite restaurant without
her? As it is, you keep thinking about how much she would

daughter and her new boyfriend. No one talks about her,
but she is all you can think about.
