I wish there was no such thing as depression because then I would have grown up with a mum. I eventually found you in other people's memories and official documents, it's not ideal but it's better than nothing I guess. You left a big, gaping ache in my life and I know you didn't mean too but you did. I guess you thought we'd be better off but we weren't. I haven't gotten over your death, I don't think I ever will even though it's been nearly 45 years but I've learned to live with it a bit better each year. Miss you much, love you more.
