Cannot stay 2013-12-05 8:27 a.m.

I can't remember the day exactly - but I know it's nearing the day that you left me for good.

I wish time had healed the raw wound that you left on me... instead time only filled the space around it with marriage and babies... trial and heartache... and joy. Joy that doesn't belong to you and I... where in some parallel universe it should.

I'm sure you know I see you sometimes out of the corner of my eye. In a shadow. In a stranger's face. I saw you this morning actually... a flash ducking behind my couch. It used to bother me... but I'm happier finding comforting believing you're around and seeing this... seeing me... moving forward - ever so slowly in my grief.
