Today, on Valentine's Day, I wear ashes

Today I wear ashes.

Today I’ll put red food coloring in the kids' mac and cheese to do something fun for my little valentines.

Today I will avoid the grocery like the plague for fear of shedding tears at the sight of rose bouquets.

Today I’ll take the dog on a walk. She will probably be the only one who kisses me today.

Today I’ll eat red and pink peanut M&Ms and smile remembering how you hated when I breathed on you after eating them.

Today I will take a valentine card to your grave because I can’t imagine not giving you one.

Today I’ll sit alone on the couch without you.

Today I wear ashes. Because I pray to God they’ll get me back to you one day.
