I was left here… alone. Abandoned. My family didn’t want me anymore. They only came back to take what little they left behind they wanted.

For a while I felt like I lived in a zoo: people stopping and staring in at me, never getting to know me. They’d point. They’d stare. They’d move on. One of them was you. Then, a whole year later, you walked into my life. I could tell you loved me from the start. You let me meet your family. Then you brought her into our lives.

I’m not the jealous type. There’s enough room in this heart for both of you.

Do I have a heart? I think I do.

We will grow old together you, she and I. And some day you will leave, or I will be gone. I understand that. But until then we will treasure our time together.

Nothing lasts forever.

Not even an Adirondack camp.
