The most painful memories are the times in the early days when you would say, "Just don't leave me."
I threatened and I wanted to. But I never did.
I hold you one last time in my mind as long as I need to, to let you go, and I hold you forever in that place in my heart where I've loved, until the hurt heals over.
Though your end was unkind, I have no bitter goodbye.
My love, goodbye.
