My Journey w/ Grief - Do Over

Do Over

Do Over

prompted
by
a
television
ad
my
wife
asks
“If you had one do over in your life, what would it be?”
without
thinking
I
instantly
reply
“I don’t know”
as
I
seek
to
eradicate
this
question
from
my
heart
and
mind
Immediately
Donna
responds
“I don’t know either”
this
question
is
too dangerous
too painful
to
consider
for
the
question
we
hear
is
“What
one
thing
could
I
have
done
differently
so
Nathan
would
still
be
alive?”
we
instinctively
fight
against
this
unspoken
question
I
win
this
battle
at
least
for
now
but
I
watch
my
wife
as
sadness
enters
her
eyes
as
sorrow
begins
to
gain
control
of
her
heart
and
mind
as
tears
overtake
her
I
watch
as
this
unspoken
question
begins
to
devour
her
