I wrote this in February, finished it tonight. I plan to run early in the morning before work, but I just had to get this out before I could really rest.
Oh, God not again Awakened from my sleep This time was different This time was dark My heart couldn't bear it My brain couldn't believe it One last kiss on my brother's hot cheek An ambulance ride Once last time I closed my bedroom door, cried, "Oh, God no" My body fell to the hard wood floor And collapsed underneath death's blanket
To read my brother's story, as told by my running mom, go here. You will get to know him more and more through his sister's writings.
I miss him every single day, and he's the reason I tri.
