Empty

There will be an empty chair at dinner, an empty China plate from my mom’s collection, an empty mug of cocoa, an empty seat in the van when we go to the park on Christmas Eve, an empty bed with empty Christmas pajamas, gifts will stay unopened under the tree, a stocking will remain hung, questions will be asked with no comforting answers given, another phone call will be made and denied, our love will continue to pour out into the gaping wound that is our son.

“Little Big Man” has been referred to Psychiatric Residential Treatment again, he continues his stay at Willowbrook Psychiatric Hospital with no discharge date in site.  He is refusing to speak with us and refusing all visits.
