Is that what love is?

He loves you, my daughter screamed in response to my lament over the years of non-communication from my son.

He loved you so much, my friend, Star said sadly in answer to my news of divorce from the sire of my children.

Weeping, I told her of my father’s latest stream of nastiness at me, she barely whispered, and he loved you so much.

Why is it that the three most important men in my life have left me so alone, so wounded, so empty of anything but feeling loved. If the way they behaved toward me was a display of their affection, all I can say is they sure had a funny way of showing it.
