Tom was shattered and heartbroken as Amanda was with Dan,
Standing outside in snow contemplating, cracking a tear but stanched.
I slowly put my hand on his shoulder and he looked at me with eyes red and face blank.
“How would I live,” he said with a shudder in his voice. “You will,” I said, though his heart was dank.
“Let’s grab a coffee for you,” I said and took him with me to nearby Tim Horton while we saw Amanda leaving with Dan.
