I was a state, tears ran down my face like a cold tap being left on in an empty house for days

Extracts from this document...


A Distinct sign I was a state, tears ran down my face like a cold tap being left on in an empty house for days. My heart was burnt from the worst heart burn I've ever had. I was totally speechless, like a bird trapped in a cage, and all there was left of him to see was the ash. It tore me apart knowing that my Grandad's gone and it hurt even more knowing that Im never going to see that smile he used to give, it was a horrible feeling. The cremation was the worst, just knowing behind those curtains was my Grandad being burnt to ashes; it was like being stabbed with a big knife and it just being pushed into my heart deeper and deeper by the second.
