My Last Words

Words are my life.  Words have afforded me things way beyond my imagination.   My words, many have told me, have helped them heal in times of pain.

What do you say to someone who’s only minutes away from their last breath?  When that someone is the women you love.  I stand outside her room, the door inches from my face.   No words are flowing, just tears.  I have never married.  She knows why, that’s why I am here.  I push the door and enter, but it’s too late. All I say is  “I love you forever.”  Words please heal me.

These words are fiction, written for Velvet Verbosity’s 100 word challenge.  This weeks word is breath
