Today, December 7, 2021, it is 28 years ago that Sophia was born, at home in Amsterdam.
The pain of missing her is indescribable.


The world is strangely empty without you

There is so little left in it

The sky is always so annoyingly blue

Why? What’s the point?

The blackbird is softly singing in a tree

For me he doesn’t have to bother

The world could be full of happiness, but now:

Empty, without you

Annie M.G. Schmidt (1911 – 1995)
