Does time really heal broken hearts or does it just move you farther away from your pain? All those I have loved and lost are standing on the other side of a chasm I can see but not cross right now.
I am not losing someone; I know where they are and where they are going. The problem is, I’m going to be left behind once again. The space where they smiled next to me will be empty. I’m not alone; there are others who will miss that smile. We are all standing together watching love leave.
How that smile touched each and every one of us will forever be imprinted in our mind’s eye. I look forward to the time when the memory of love will bring a smile and not a tear.
But for now I will stand in silence and wait
Words cannot express my sorrow at the passing of my writing partner, Lyle Ernst. He was my best friend and we have been writing together for 15 years. I can't imagine plotting out The Mida books without his help in research, editing, and great chapter work.
As it is with everyone, he was here one day and gone the next. No goodbye, no warning, we thought he'd have more time. But Cancer can take us whether we are ready or not I guess. I miss him with every breath I take and can't figure out how to get by every day without hearing his wonderful laugh.
He would want our work to go on, so I will keep writing The Mida series. We had originally planned out eight books and thank goodness we had them somewhat figured out.
The world is a little less bright for me now. But I have great memories of my friend Lyle, and I will continue our work as he would wish.
