My long term friend, lover and life partner died of a heart attack recently and my days are filled with our memories.
The steps I take in my day to day are now without him, something that was 41 years strong. We were able to spend the last eight years together, because even with our shift in our day to day, we were always closest to each other.
In the words of Bobby Darin:
Somewhere beyond the sea
somewhere waiting for me
my lover stands on golden sands
and watches the ships that go sailin'
Good-bye old friend, see you on the other side,
