He was part of a two such that finding one alone is like a lake drained of it's water, sun drained of it's heat, a man without his shadow, love without a sigh. He stands there in his worn farm denims and plaid shirt looking down the dirt road that meanders behind the old farmhouse, through the break in the trees and beyond to the green fields.  Evenings waning sun casting shadows not quite dark enough to bring out the fear that always lurks where you can't see. His black lab sits at his feet, looking up sadly at his best friend, waiting for any kind of signal. The man rests a gentle hand on his dogs head scratching lightly behind the ears offering what comfort he can. Memories flood the old mans head like a great damn whose ports have opened, nothing to hold them back no matter if he wanted to.  She was everything to him. She was the soul of his being, he was hers. Gone two years now but feels like an eternity.
