Prompt: Show a part of your nature that you feel you've lost. Can you get it back? Would it be worth it?
I heard someone say "it's time". My breath caught in my throat as my heart pounded. Two simple words that would forever change my life. I wanted to shake them off like an ill fitting sweater but the more I struggled the tighter they took hold.
My feet began to to move and I found myself inching towards the room where you lay. There was a strange sound that seemed out of place . . . . . a death rattle filled the room, filling my heart and soul with its presence.
I took your hand and just moments later I felt you leave. With one last breath, you, the man who had meant the world to me were gone. In that moment I felt ripped wide open as though there was a gaping hole right through the very core of me. A part of me was lost that day. Even though nine years have passed, and the hole is smaller, a part of me will remain forever lost.
