"Memories keep sideswiping me, jarring me back to last week or last month or 18 years ago.

I grasp at them.

I grab all the details and I beg them to become that permanent part of memory - that place where the wooden fence broke under my leg, leaving me with this scar; that place where I can feel my husbands hand gliding my wedding ring on my finger; that place where you introduced us to Talinda for the first time, backstage in a hallway of cement blocks, you both completely confident in your love; that place where I hear you singing to my kids on the boat on the way to the O2 arena.

You thought with your heart; Passion guided every step, movement, decision, moment.

A heart that big couldn't help but to love so fiercely, hurt so fiercely."
