1.4 | Meg - The Goodby‪e‬ In All Honesty

    • Performing Arts

There’s a balance to how it all works out. We’re not prepared for this shit ever…
when it comes. I guess that’s what makes us human.
 
But I just remember… they say a piece of you goes when someone goes in your life
that means a lot to you. Now, I never knew my daughter. I knew her for two days.
And for those two days she was deceased. But… we formed a bond. Like, it was real
and I know she’s looking after us. I know she is. And maybe that’s just what gets me
by.
