They say that time heals all wounds.  I suppose that is true.  But, loss is a deep puncture to the heart.  The pain is never as acute as it was in the beginning.  The sharpness dulls to an ache.  Eventually, the wound heals.  But, it never mends to it’s original form.  There is always a scar.  Maybe it’s no longer as painful.  Still, it’s always there.  As a remembrance.  And I kind of like that.  Almost like a tattoo on the heart; a reminder that you will carry with you always.  As much as I try to make some sort of sense out of the whole thing, at the end it doesn’t really matter how or why.  What matters is that he was.  In my heart, he still is.  And that is enough.
