I lean closer to her, my silent tears sliding down my cheeks, my hand stroking her rapidly cooling cheek. My heart feels dead as it pounds painfully in my chest.

Her face is untouched but the rest of her body lies torn and broken under a white sheet. I know that behind me is the body of her nine-year-old daughter. They shared the same fate. They died together.

It just isn't fair.

Regret for paths not taken wash over me as I lean closer and brush a kiss across her lips and say my final goodbye.

"I've always loved you Cath."
