How to feel? Were to turn? All these years and still the hurt! You told me to be strong to find happiness. I tried so hard Trev but I keep failing. You were my flashlight in the dark my rock. I need you to help me be strong but your not here. Taken from me in the blink of an eye. I never got to say goodbye!! I never got to tell you that I love you and you made me whole. I miss you with every breath I take.
