The Other Side of Tomorrow

Hayley Lawrence

What if you thought you had forever . . .
To live your life. To tell your story.
But what if forever was taken from you?
When your tomorrows are counted,
all you have is this moment.
And this story you wish was never yours to tell.

When Abby traded her life in the city for a wholesome new life
on the coast, it was meant to be a fresh start for her family.
Behind them was the sickness and sadness of the past.
But sickness doesn’t always play by the rules. And as Abby’s past
threatens to swallow her future, she is forced to decide what is
most important. What she will fight for. And she will fight.
For however many days she has left.

There’s a word for a kid who loses her parents. A word for a wife whose husband dies, and one for a husband whose wife dies. There’s no word in the English language for parents who lose their kid. Maybe it’s the kind of grief nobody can name.
