Sarah - I have to comment on your story:) There is so much imagination and good writing in Edgar was. The first line that really hooked me in is this one: "This morning I had a nice chat with myself over morning coffee, strong and black just like Edgar's, and convinced the procrastinator in me that the attic was long over due for a good purge and scrub."

The fire stole all my photo's of you, my love. But, when I picture your hands, I remember the days and nights we spent together in Mexico where we first met. The way you gently brushed the hair from my eyes, and rubbed my aching back. Your hand in mine during our evening walks down the beach while I talked endlessly about our future together. And, you always listened, and your hands were always there for me.

Your strong, gentle hands.

I never knew how much I'd miss them, my love.

I didn't know
I do
I mourn

I didn't know
it was the last time
I would
see him

I didn't know
his promises
could be taken

I didn't know
that G-d
could forsake

I didn't know
but now
I do
