Its been almost 20 years but sometimes it feels like yesterday, Sometimes I forget the sound of your voice. Loss is such a funny thing.

Chapter 1

Sometimes, it’s a heavy weight upon my chest, withholding every breath.

Sometimes, it’s a strangers smile, a laugh, and it’s like you never left.

Of all you are when you’re not there.
