A personal account of the haunting absence of a lost love. This is a story about grief, loss and reaching for freedom. The sense of emptiness that comes after saying, I love you, every day until, suddenly, you don't. But the love is never truly gone. It's with you always, leaning over your shoulder as you rediscover a world in which it no longer exists.
