Chapter 2

On some evenings,
more than many others,

The why's and what for's
weigh more heavily than the if's and but's.

It does not help that the sun is going down
leaving the sky on fire with a riot of colors.

Laughing as it leaves me,
to the silences in the night.

Then I realize that the weight
that is crushing my heart,

Is the absence of you.

For my Appa - who I miss everyday. Whose absence makes me acutely aware of what my own life means to my children, and what purpose and meaning I might have in the grand scheme of things.
