Working Blues

I'm back to work after a two week absence. There was a lot of emails to wade through and a lot of things to catch up on.

My co-workers are all stopping me to offer their condolences. I thank them and then we part, quickly, before the silence gets too embarrassing.

She used to call or text me in the early morning hours around 3 or 4 if she was awake and couldn't sleep. We would talk or text for a few minutes, and then she would be OK to go back to sleep.

She won't call tonight. She won't text tonight.

She won't call or text ever again.

I'm really missing her tonight.
