Amedeo dedicates a moving post on Instagram to the missing mother: "You were the light of my limelight, where can I find the instructions to go on?"
We will never be ready, at any age, to lose a parent. Mums and dads are (almost always) the people who brought us into the world, raised, educated, accompanied by the hand as long as it was possible for them. Saying goodbye to them is always excruciating and painful, at 20 as at 60.
Amedeo Grieco knows about it, from the comic duo "Pio e Amedeo" who on Instagram gave the news of the disappearance of his mother, cut off at only 56 years from an illness.
Amedeo had previously spoken of the battle of the mother. Today, in saying goodbye, she does it with a beautiful and moving post, summarizing in a few lines the essence of their relationship. The total but discreet love of women, always in the audience to observe and rejoice in their children's goals. "Now where do I find the instructions to go on" writes the comedian.
A few days ago you said to me: I WOULD BE HURT, EVEN FOREVER IN A BED, I DON'T ASK A LOT, I WOULD BE JUST STILL HERE TO SEE YOU GROW, TO WATCH WHAT YOU DO
It would have been enough for you to be a spectator and enjoy the family show you built …
you were like that, you lived to enjoy our goals, in the fourth row of the stalls, well hidden in the dark, always fearing to bother you … yet you were really the light of my limelight, the very meaning of the goals, and my greatest success was and it will always be that: the pride of your gaze … now what am I going to do? Who do I call when I arrive? And to whom will I tell you that Federico has lost another tooth? Who do I send the photo of Alice with the skirt to? How do I explain it to your grandchildren now ?! Someone tell me !? Where can I find the instructions to go on?
Oh Ma, here you have been missing for a few hours and the pain is already digging a hole in your soul, and from tomorrow that will be filled with a sea of everyday life we will try not to drown in … Look at us, 5 men … Dad, me, Alessio, Simone and Gabriele … you built the soccer team first and now you took the ball away … and you leave us alone, in the middle of the field, disoriented, condemning us to look for a new meaning for everything!
We don't know if we will ever succeed, but one thing is certain: we will find you in every passing day, we will feel you strong in the silences, when we stumble in the voids, we will imagine your smile closing your eyes when we are sure that at that moment you would have smiled , we will smell your perfume wherever something tastes good … everything from tomorrow will be our great illusion you have never abandoned us
We loved you but more than we could tell each other
And we will always love you, should everything also seem useless around
Make yourself heard, see you soon❤
