I won't say goodbye

The series I won’ t say goodbye is based on a true story about a demented old lady who has been living in an old age home for four years.
Her beautiful sixties style seaside bungalow, after all these years, still stands exactly just as she left it, like a museum full of memories. Back in time, we see how she, as a young widow in the late sixties stayed strong yet more and more began to live a hermit’s life.

‘Is it fair to say: What did I do to deserve this?’
Life takes it’s own turn. The cost is determined without even asking my prior consent.
Carry on alone.
No full laundry baskets with childrens clothes and that of my hubby.
No tables to set for the family.
Too much time on.
How do I full, empty days?
No socks to darn, nappies to wash, scraped knees to take care of or tears to dry.
Who will dry my tears?
