What Do You Do?

 
My Love.

My Love.

 
 

What do you do when the love of your life dies?

Do you weep from somewhere so deep in your body, you didn’t know it existed?

Do you walk, retracing each step they ever took?

Do you die, a piece of your heart leaving this earth with them?

Do you wince every time something, everything, reminds you of them?

They say it gets easier.
