It’s been so long since I have seen you. How was your tour of duty? I hate to tell you this, sense you have been so far away for so long, but I don’t know how else to do.
We went to the park, just the two of us. Our hands interlace as the birds were singing and the sun setting. We just were sitting down when they came to talk with us.
My ears were ringing as I woke up, soaked in blood. Some mine, most of it his. They knew him from the high school, they used to play football with him when they were younger. The slurs they through still rang out in my head as I tried to see your son. I love him, and I grabbed his hands and asked him to speak with me. He held tight. He mouthed the words “I love…” then he let’s go of my hands.
I’m so sorry, Meredith. I didn’t mean to sneak behind your back, but you wouldn’t let us see each other. I didn’t mean for it to end this way. But by the time you read this the one who ended the life of the only family you have left will be gone as well.
I’m sorry again. I just, I just wanted you to know that I loved him. I loved him like you do. I’m sorry.
