You left me on a hot summer morning.

You left me with so many questions.

You left me alone.

You're gone and I can't get you back.


Did you know?

Did you know more than you let on?

Half of my family is gone now.

First her, then you.

I found you.

and her.


I don't know where to go from here.



Do you hear me?

What's next for me?

This wasn't supposed to happen to us

you were getting better.

They said you were going to be fine soon.


Did you give up?


I was there for you.

I always was.

I needed you to be there for yourself.


You suffered your entire life.

If it wasn't this it was that.

I won't ever be ok

but I'm glad you are now.

I'll have you forever in my heart.

No more suffering

now that you're gone.
