The Let Down

She just broke down into tears.  It was just moments after her hand slipped and dropped the vase of roses.  It wasn’t the spilled water on the floor, the broken stems or the cracked vase that got to her.  It was the fact that they had been his roses from the funeral.  She had once more done something to let him down.  She would never be the perfect child now and her heart was tired from years of trying without success.  She lost herself in tears of regret and disappointment.  She sobbed thinking he died not knowing she loved him.
