The noise and sounds of battle begin to dissipate. Smoke and debris fill the air.

The echoes of life are gone as the fear of emptiness approaches reality.

The thoughts of accepting what has just past are profound and real.

My way of thinking, my way of life are taken from me as I confront loneliness without time to heal.

Anxiety fills my mind as I think about life going forward without her by my side.

Please turn back time, give me that chance for she is mine.
