He was here one day, then suddenly gone the next.  Just like that.  In an instant it seemed.  Never again to be loved or spoken too.  He took himself away, suddenly.  Left a gaping hole in our hearts, broken hearts.  Time can’t heal that loss.  

Suddenly those left behind became more precious.  We all became more acutely aware.  Love those you love each day, and love them hard, because suddenly hurts. 

Until next time…
