Today, my brother departed for maybe a year. You would think for longer by my tears. As he left, I watched from the window wishing him my best. In the room now is an empty chair where he once sat to rest. He’s really gone, I thought, as I took a deep breath.
In his room, I see an empty bed, come home soon, soon… I again said. There is nothing here except myself and nothing more so I bowed my head and slowly closed the door.
