Omar, I am so sorry you are going through this profoundly painful time. But how beautifully you write about it! I am lost for words. A psychologist once told me when I described my pain to him, "It won't always be this way." That became my mantra. My friend, things won't always be this way. Trust me on this. Thank you for the poem by Mary Oliver. Yes, thank God for poets, you among them. You may feel alone, but I can tell you, you are not. Sending love and hugs.
