Friday

It was everything I thought it would be,

And more.

The room was finally empty,

And my heart,

Full.

With my head against the pillow,

Envisioning...

I must have briefly fallen asleep,

Only to be awoken by Dave.

"26"

One little nap.

How could it be?

From the highest high,

To the lowest low.

Can you imagine?

Yes I can.

Life as I knew it....over.

A beautiful child walking out the door, 

For the very last time.

Never to return again.

Why...yes I could.

But the parallel lines end there.

I can't imagine.

Not at all.

Since then...

I have taken on a bit of their sadness.

Just as I'm sure we all have.

My heart breaks and aches.

And stretches all the way across these state lines.
