The Metronome Tree

Forget about your lists and do what you can because that's all you can do. Phone up the people you miss and tell them you love them. Hug those close to you as hard as you can. Because you are always only a drunk driver's stupidity, a nervous shopkeeper's mistake, a doctor's best attempts and an old age away from forever.

Hello, Everyone? I love you.

If you were here, I'd hug you all until it hurt.

(and Iain, that goes double for you, sugar)

If only I can find a way to hold that person close, I would.

I will tell them I love them, Iain. Thanks for reminding me. And I love you, too.

This is why I'll be out of town for a while. So that I can go on a province-wide hug tour, to those long-overdue people.

You really should have written this earlier you know.
...or rather, you shouldn't have had to be the one to remind me. Humans are, and will always be, busy with the importance of their own lives.
But if only... If I could have not only pondered, but acted on the thought of giving my grandmother a call after christmas to thank her for her generous gift - probably more than she actually should have given - What if?

She died, the 29th of december. The guilt is still heavy as lead in my stomach.

I love you.
