The Floor Was Cold.

  1. You do crazy things for love.
  2. I slept on the floor beside your bed
  3. I couldn't bear the thought of leaving you that night.
  4. The floor was cold.
  5. Linoleum.
  6. Hospital grade.
  7. I didn't know how many hours we had left.
  8. I wasn't going to waste a minute being anywhere but your side.
  9. The feeling was strangely familiar.
  10. Yet also entirely unique.
  11. Would I be awake to hold your hand as you took your last breath?
  12. Like I was there when Dad took his.
  13. I miss you more now than I ever conceived I could back then.
  14. As I watched you slip into the next realm.
  15. In complete peace.
  16. With complete grace.
