I wish…

I wish

I wish

I wish I could take Erin’s pain away tonight….

She has fallen and I am not there to help.  The irony is she has fallen, in part, because I am not there.  There was a long stretch where her pain was quite and we were smiling, laughing, loving, holding hands.  We smile at each other, travelling can change that quickly and it has.  I have not visited my blog in some time.  Strangely that is a good thing as I more often now I turn to this when I feel alone.  I will be home tomorrow Erin.  I wish I was there now to hold you and help you past this moment towards the next time we can smile together.  

I know you are suffering tonight.  I am 2000 miles away powerless to help.  I sit alone reading your texts filled with anger, pain, anguish and sadness.  I absorb them as if doing so will drain some of your pain even if for a short time.  

I wish I could drain all the pain away but reality is all too evident.  But sometimes wishing and hoping is all you have.  Tonight it is all I have.  

Goodnight Erin. Sleep soon.
