Would you like something? The tea here is nice. Green tea, Roobios, Cranberry and Lemon, Earl Grey, White tea, South African Red tea, blueberry tea, peppermint, mango peach, mandarin, Red Rose… my cupboard is
full. Probably I have a couple dozen varieties. Milk, cream, sugar? White,
brown, honey? I made you some cookies. Chocolate chip? Oatmeal? Sugar Cookies?
No? well I will leave the plate here just in case you change your mind.
I haven’t slept much in the past four months. Enough to get by, but not a solid, restful sleep. I had one night, the night that she died. I slept out of exhaustion. I spent my sleep talking with her. You were there, you
know. Are you sure you doing want a cookie? I made them this morning.
Do you mind if I just sit here and say nothing? I don’t know what to say any more. I held her hand, felt life leave her body, felt the shift and the pull as she was released into spirit. She changed forever and so did I.
