Here we go again… 😉
Five years, I dealt with his death every morning while my mind teetered on the brink of waking or never waking. Every night when I cried until breath left my lungs and my soul wept for him.
God, I never would have… So many things I wouldn’t have done, had I known.
Shame glazed my skin with a thin sheen of sweat. I’d failed this beautiful creature.
