Tonight my coworkers asked me,
As they always do,
“When do you want to take your break?”
“I don’t usually take them.” My standard reply.
I don’t say why. That some nights the tears are too close.
That I love the memories despite the pain they cause,
Because they are of you. Because they bring you near again,
And the pain of the separation is even worse,
Than the pain of remembering.

Just arrived at Ann’s house in Dirham … beautifully sad and grateful all at once. Thank you for touching my heart once again … passed through Danville around 12, no surprise who I was thinking of :… love you

Love you too dear sister. One more night and then I’m off a few days. Let’s touch base then. ❤️
