    It's been 8 months, 22 days

    and 5 hours since she died and it still feels the same when I first heard the news. Jozlyn. My darling niece. The day she died, I collapsed to the floor in my classroom. I wept on the ride home. I didn't want her to die, but life for her meant suffering. I guess it's my...

    I adore the way you look at her.

    I adore the way I will lose your love to her. I adore the way you hold her, without my blood and only yours. I adore that you count her fingers and toes and hold her in such grace only I have yet to discover. Small kisses to pay menial prices. Upon her forehead I wander...

    When you lose someone,

    you try to remember the last time you saw them. And most of the time it's a blurry memory, because at that last time you had no idea it would be the last.

    Sara, This is the second time I write about you, the irony being the cruel difference of reasons. I found out today that you are gone and won’t be coming back this time. This cannot be real; this must be a joke, yet I have confirmed for certain that it is not. You should...
