A year...

Today, a year ago my Sean left
this world. It changed my life forever.
We have been friends since we were teenagers.
We shared a deep bond of love
and friendship.

He is buried in his hometown in Canada.
One day I will make the trip to his grave.
Today, I brought a red heart balloon.

I went to my local river. I said a prayer
and said private words to Sean. Then
I let the balloon go. I watched till
it sailed high into the blue and winked
out of sight

I love you forever, Sean.
