ultimate sadness | ultimate joy

There was once a boy and a girl.
They loved one another..very much

After a few years of being together
and wedded bliss..they..
...had a beautiful baby
that gave them such joy....

But the boy started hanging out
with the wrong crowd..which made the girl
....very sad

but she knew that he loved her..
.....and always
came home to her..

Then one day something terrible happened..
and the boy...dropped the baby..
and their sweet little child died.

The grief they felt was unbearable..
..and drove them slowly

He started spending less and less time at home..
and he started with terrible habits..
..which he picked up from his bad friends

She would sit at home and wait for him...
every night....faithfully
but not always would he come home...
...and when he was home, he seemed to not even notice her

But there was one day...that was different.
The day that their baby died.
He was serious and sober..on that day
They would make a small meal...a rememberance..
just the 2 of them...
And he'd look at her....and she at him..
with tears in their eyes
and so much love
and she knew
...she felt it in her heart...
that one day...
they'd have another child..
...and that filled her with joy.

May this be our last Tisha B'av
