My heart aches with such heaviness, that the burden seems to drive me into the ground, making it a miracle, that I can stand upright, while a river of tears streams silently from my cold face onto the baren ground.
I am not alone, but feel more separated from any human being, than ever before, more tears falling, just falling.
One breath had changed everything, one decision you made, a decision that cost me the love of my life, the father of my unborn child.
You should have waited just a few minutes longer, the distance to our home so short, from the intersection that took you away from me, barely a mile away.
A red light, a crash, and in an instant you where gone.
