The feeling I am left with today is that of betrayal.
I might have betrayed someone today. Someone who loves me so much.
My betrayal was remaining silent.
Not letting her know sooner that I won’t be around ..not at least in the same place as her child would be.
I intend to tell her later. Not that delaying the delivery of unpleasant tidings would make it less so.
I couldn’t muster up the courage because she disarmed me with her first greeting.
“You look so happy and energetic always and it rubs on me”.
I thought that I would let her linger a while longer hoping that she would understand when I explain.
I believe that I have suggested the safest place for her child . He will be nurtured and he will metamorph into a confident kid even if I am not present .
Today I betrayed my girl with my Silence.
