Sometimes the World Stops.

Wednesday, September 29, 2010

Sometimes, on the worst kinds of days, the people we love are hurting in ways we can not imagine. And in these dark, silent moments, there are no words. Nothing we can say to make it better, to erase the memory of what should never have happened. What I will say here - to that beautiful, silly, lovely woman who has become so dear to me, who has been a life raft during my own storms - is that I am so sorry. I wish there was something I could say, something I could do, to ease what must be the loneliest and scariest of times for you. What I will say is that they are playing "Lean on Me" at Starbucks while I'm writing this and I'm crying with you. What I will say is that the only thing I know for sure is that time heals even the most unbearable of hurts. What I will say is that I love you and will hold your hand through this.
