Losing a Friend

She was a friend at school. We used to sit on the grass and share stories of where our future might go when we left school.

We have met over the years, the last time she was deeply distressed that she didn’t follow a path that was just hers.

This week she was killed by a train. I hadn’t seen her for a while and wondered if she had made any progress along her own path

I was surprised at the depth of my grief. It’s taken a few days to come to terms with.

Chris my friend, I wish you all the love in the universe.
