As I stand high above the city looking out onto everything I've ever known, I think. I think about the day I met my husband. I think about the day he proposed and the day we found out I was pregnant. I think of all the smiles, all the laughs as tears of love and happiness begin to silently flow down my cheeks. Suddenly, as always, the good memories are washed away. The silent tears of joy turn into a steady stream accompanied by my pain-filled sobs. I remember the day they were ripped away. The day my husband and my daughter were killed on that icy mountain road. The day that a murderer walked out with nothing but a bustsed lip and a fractured wrist. I sob louder and harder as the sadness fills my heart. \"I just can't do this anymore,\" I whisper almost inaudibly to myself. I jump. Soaring through the air I finally feel the weight of sorrow lift from my shoulders. I've almost reached my freedom. I don't see the ground coming up beneath me and the fall seems to last for hours, but after only seconds I feel the end. In an instant I feel nothing. I am nothing. I look down at the pool of blood spreading on the cold concrete around my body. I stare as people rush to my aid though it's already too late. I look up and I see them waiting for me. I walk toward my husband, kiss him, then grab my daughters hand. They lead me away. At that moment I smile. Finally. Finally we can never be taken from eachother again.
