Things I might say if I could.

I asked around, because I couldn't really understand why you would intentionally put yourself in this position. I don't think at this point in my life I would have done the same. But maybe you didn't know what it was, is. Or maybe you did. And decided this was the fire to jump into.
I wonder if you catch my hints. I can't imagine a world where you don't. That's not the world I live in. I think you live here too.
I have this overwhelming desire to talk to you right now, to tell you everything and show you all of the places that hurt. It would take a very long time now that I am this old.

And then I would sigh and say, "Your turn."
