Dear Kelly

Dear Kelly, 

There are no words for a bit of this.
Five years ago today
I fell into the arms of a friend at work
and cried, unashamed because you were gone
running afterwards in the snow as I wept
It might have been otherwise...

Yet, I have so much to be grateful for
I became a runner
I started writing
I found a cause greater than myself.
It might have been otherwise.

I became a Christian because of you three years ago today.
I know we will be together again.
It might have been otherwise.

I whisper your name each night before I fall asleep
I tell you I love you.
That will never be otherwise....
