Her: I can’t write it that means I have to think about you.
Him: You are the only one who can write it.
Her: Please don’t make me write it! I just want to cry, cry until I have no tears left.
Him: I don’t see any tears…
Her: No they won’t come…..I can’t cry any more. I haven’t cried in years.
Him: Hard to cry without a shoulder to cry on.
Her: You are gone, remember?
Him: No I am right behind you… I will always be here…no one can keep me away from you now…..
Her: I need to cry but the tears won’t come…..I want a time machine to go back to that day, that cold crisp January day….then the other days…when you walked away…..
Him: I am here.
Her: What if I forget?
Him: You will remember….you will never forget…it’s like breathing.
Her: I hate you for leaving…I hate we were apart…..I hate…..
Him: Careful…hate is not a word you need…breathe…pray…write…I love you. Love is the only word you need.
Her: I love you now and always.
(He silently smiles)
