And this is the part that it hurts the most.
All the things that happen in a year. All the things that didn’t.
Everything that will never be.
It all hurts the most,
but nothing as much as leaving.
It’s more than the most. It’s indescribable.
I did it for us,
for leaving and dying was safer than staying and dying.
Fly free find love.
A year ahead.
Taking care of yourself,
and someone else who will take care of you, too.
Protect your heart,
protect her heart, too.
