If tears could build a stairway, And memories a lane, I'd walk right up to Heaven

And bring you home again.

I put the bucket of flowers on the ground by the tombstone. "Mom, Dad, Nate, I'm sorry that I haven't visited you these last two years. I promise I will visit you every year and tell you boring stories about how's life been treating me. I promise I'll keep you updated so one day when we meet again, there's nothing you miss and it feels like you've never left."

I feel his hand on my shoulder and turn to him. Even in casual sweater and jeans, Remliel still looks as good as he's in suits. I lay my head on his shoulder and he holds me tight.

Sometimes the hardest part isn't forgiving others, it's to forgive yourself.

Remliel helped me to regain my memory but as the memory came back, so did all the pain and suffering. It wasn't easy to deal with. I remember the day I committed suicide. I was blaming myself for their death. Because they weren't supposed to be driving at night. If I didn't join the summer camp, they wouldn't have to pick me up and got into the accident which led to their death. The guilt haunted me, torturing me with so many nightmares. It squeezed my brain, obliterated my mind and almost drove me insane.

Sometimes I felt like giving up because it was all too much to bear but Remliel helped me to cope with everything, he showed me that the easy way out wasn't the right way. His love helped me see the light at the end of what felt like an endless tunnel. Even on my darkest days, my love for him rides underneath it all, keeping my mind from sinking into the mire that

mama. After all, he's the one who supported me and kept on encouraging me when I almost gave up. He leans down and kisses my forehead. "Don't worry about it, love. When you do something out of passion and love, it will always find a way to work out."

As always, he manages to erase all doubts and worries from my mind. I answer him with the only way I can as I stand on my toes and press my lips against his.

Three months later. Breaking Through The Darkness has reached 20 million copies sold worldwide. It embodies the life of a non-fiction author, Julie Saint Matthews and her struggle with depression and loss.

"You will lose someone you can't live without, and your heart will be badly broken, and the bad news is that you never completely get over the loss of your beloved. But this is also the good news. They live forever in your broken heart that doesn't seal back up. And you come through. It's like having a broken leg that never heals perfectly – that still hurts when the weather gets cold, but you learn to dance with the limp." –Anne Lamott
