Alpha and Omega

Two years ago,
You fell and
I fell with you.
Bricks and boards
Scattered in the dirt,
Nothing left of
All that came before.
You were the
Beginning of the
End for me--
The end of who I was
And who I
Was going to be.
Two years and
Too many losses later,
I finally understand:
The end is
Always the beginning.
You fell and
I fell with you,
But we will both
Rise from the ashes.

For Nathan (July 7, 1990 - September 27, 2008).
