Forgotten

I could barely find the energy I needed to roll out of bed to take a shower. I left the covers a mess – just the way I saw my life. My preoccupation over my occupation had become a burden I believed to be unbearable. I went for coffee. The kids sat at the breakfast table laughing and giggling -- I hardly noticed they were there. I went to the kitchen and found one cup of coffee left in the pot for me and it was two hours old. I brushed by Mary with my coffee in hand. I sat at the table to read the paper and I murmured about the headlines. I turned passed the comics, skipped over the obituaries, and I took a deep breath. My eyes glazed over from a bad nights sleep and my attention was drawn away from the page even though I seemed to be reading. Mary gently put her hands to my shoulders and began to rub trying to relieve the tension that had turned my muscles into knots. She encouraged the kids to finish their breakfast and to get out the door on time for school. Mary leaned over and wrapped her arms around my chest, she kissed my left cheek and whispered “happy anniversary.” My face turned flush and I apologized.

Interesting window into his life, but left only slightly opened, Enough there to interest a reader who would like to hear more. I liked the ending.

Very simple and to the point. This is so true in most cases. I could feel the regret. I liked it.
