She opened her mailbox

only to find a letter from him

A wave of malady washed over her

Her intuition was at a record high today

As is a psychic’s touching an envelope for clues

at the scene of a crime

Usually he would call her; and

They would bounce off ideas

She hadn’t heard from him for a while until now

She tore it open and read

As you already know, I have been sick for much of the

past year

Wait for it … she knew what was coming next

She read on

He was still in much pain and although

Their project was almost concluded

He found no other choice but to back out

He stated he felt sad that he wouldn’t be able to continue

He knew what to do and it was almost over

But he had no other choice

She knew it was nobody’s fault

Circumstances beyond anyone’s control

Later she would realize maybe he didn’t really know

What to do; maybe nobody ever really knew what to do

That would explain why he hadn’t really done much at all

She knew what she must do next

What she always did when faced with sobering news

which initially came as disappointment

Give it time to sink in; then look at other options

For now she tied the letter to a long piece of string

attached to a large helium balloon

and watched it float away

if only in her mind’s eye

to revisit another day
