Finish Lines

I ran two races at once to win lives that were precious to me. My opponent was Death.

Death had a head start.

Sometimes I ran strong, hopeful and determined. Other times I faltered, exhausted, confused about where to go, feeling I had already lost. Always, whichever race I was running, I felt myself falling behind in the other.

In the end, Death won them both.

  1. Heartfelt sorrow for your loss and for the road ahead of coming to terms with it. The depth of your love for these two plucky creatures was palpable and I’m glad you had the entire journey with them, painful as this part of it is. Best wishes to you from my side of the world : )
