Just Wanted to say Hi…

When?

I can no longer try to call or text, you, because you are no longer with us.  God, the sadness I now feel is palpable.  When will things feel right again?  When will the tears subside?  When will I be able to… Continue reading When?

My hands shake uncontrollably as I try to make my way to the car.
