Loss And A Broken Heart , My Miss Kitty - 1

Posted by magoo

      Hi there , my name is Eamon , born in The West of Ireland , transplanted to New York ( Bronx ) too many years ago to contemplate .

I loved America as soon as I sat in the gigantic convertible on the way from the airport to my new home in The Bronx ( Valentine Ave) .

I shared a big apartment with my two Brothers in New York until one Brother got married . I  moved to California with my other Brother 

soon after . Soon all three of us were in the San Francisco Bay Area. 

     Throughout all my moves and apartment changes I made very few friends , in fact I never really had a very close friend to confide in and 

talk to about my innermost feeling , good or bad . There are only so many things you can share with a Brother or Sister , even less with your 

Mom or Dad. There are ten kids in my family , three Girls and Seven Boys !!! I am the seventh Son but alas am not endowed with any special powers .

My only special power was to eventually attract the attention of a very special woman , a beautiful person , a woman who loved me with all her heart . 

Given my shy nature I had been close to very few women , the notches on my bedpost were very few indeed . I had  known only two young ladies who 

had , apparently stolen my heart . One was "Puppy Love " ( as it is known commonly } . I was 17 , Denise was 19 . She lived in London at the height of the IRA 

bombing attacks in London. She was Protestant and I was Catholic but neither of us took any interest in any kind of religion and never even discussed the subject . 

I traveled to London and she traveled to Ireland and Religion never came up. She was my first teenage love and I thought I could not live without her and she had 

similar feelings for me . I knew that my future would be in the USA and she knew that her future would be in London so I think we both knew it would end when I 

left for New York . We cried and played "Touch me in The Morning " as the sun came up over London. We parted and eventually grew into our new new adult lives  

on opposite sides of the Atlantic  . 

    This was the last time I ever felt that type of closeness with a woman , or any person for that matter .  I would often feel extremely lonely but was rarely alone .

There were up to five Brothers and one Sister living nearby all the time I lived in New York .   I never connected with a woman in any meaningful way  since that time, .....To Be Continued ...

magoo : Thank You Mcdonna ...My home town is Ballina, next to Sligo . Famous for the River Moy ( Salmon ) and the home of Joe Biden's ancestors . He visited last year to meet the relatives. I am lucky to have my big family while living through this horror story. I still can't believe my sweet Kitty, the only woman I ever felt a deep love for is gone .

mcdonna : I honestly am so sorry for your loss. I love Ireland, especially the west coast. You mentioned that your new president has connections there...it's also the coast where lord Mountbatten was blown up .... he really should not have had a castle there and gone lobster fishing that day ?!

mcdonna : Ps my dad's family are from kilmacrennan, Donegal ... Dec 11, 2020
magoo : Thank You Mcd. Donegal is a really beautiful place ....if you can get there on a sunny day without rain . Mayo is the same , stunning in nice weather. Amazing scenery and beaches. That's way up there in the North. They should see The Northern Lights in the next few days . My return ticket is for next May so I will be here for a while . Keeping the kids company for a few months , I need that too. Never felt this profound sadness in my heart . Dec 11, 2020
