Six months after I had my brain aneurysm, my husband found it difficult to stay in the marriage, due to the traumatic brain injury (TBI) I had suffered. I was no longer the same person he had married.

We first met in kindergarden. Losing him has been a hard blow.

He stopped coming to the hospital, I have just come home from rehab to an almost empty house, he has completely moved out of our home. I don't even know where he is.

During my continued therapy they have asked me to journalize what I am feeling.

               Do You Remember

Do you remember when I used to touch your heart
Reaching out to grasp the love you could not give
All the times I was a part
Of every day you ever lived
Reaching out to touch the sunshine
Cupping hands to hold the rain
Do you remember the days
When I was every song you ever sang
We knew that we were destined
To run and dance beside the wind
In our hourglass of life
The sand was flowing thin
I remember the night I held you to my breast
And asked if you could ever love me yes
But like the clock that ticked away the stolen time
Our poetry of love would never rhyme
I placed a hard heart against a painful sorrow
Because I had to leave you
And I knew you would not follow
Reaching out to touch the sunshine
Cupping hands to hold the rain
Do you remember the days
When I was every song you ever sang
Do you remember when I used to touch your heart
Reaching out to grasp the love you could not give
All the times I was a part
Of every day you ever lived
