This is the piece I dedicate in the memory of champion figure skater Sergei Grinkov who died of a heartattack at age 28. This is written from the perspective of his wife and partner, Katia Gordeeva.

I watch you lay down gracefully like on a floating cloud.

Squeezing a fist like a symbol of the strength you used in your life.

I glance at your face, I have no idea what’s happening.

Before I know it you’re on a death bed rolling away from me, from my life, from our life together.

You disappear into a closed-in scary moving room.

I hop on praying you’ll be all right not taking one glance at your face.. terrified.

I see the wavy lines on the fate holding monitor.

I know you are still with me.

We are rushed into the huge room that awaits your destiny, my destiny.

You leave me, alive, for the last time...yet I did not know.

I walk around terrified not understanding any of this.

You are not opening your beautiful eyes to adrenaline or electric shocks.

I don’t wonder what those are because I don’t want to know.

I want to savor us even though I know very soon my world will turn around.

I wonder, what will I tell everybody?

I think of how many hearts this will break.

I walk into the room where you are laying silently.

I sit next to you, my heart numb.

I tell you I’m so sorry this happened and that I love you.

I feel your hands and say "You’re hands are so cold".

I’m very shy like a little puppy at this moment in time.

I rub your big soft hands trying to warm them up.

I take off the shoes that held so much meaning to you and feel your feet, they are cold too.

I feel your shoulders and chest, they are still warm.

I keep trying with all my might to warm up your hands and feet, but I do not succeed, you are gone for good.

I look into your eyes.

It looks like they are almost open, you look like you’re almost smiling at me.

It looks like you’re just sleeping peacefully.

But I know better, it was your death I have just experienced.

I guess it’s true what they say, once one heart breaks the whole world breaks...

You have vicariously put your mind in the heart of Katia Gordeeva and penned a wonderful tribute. Your pen speaks with the age of wisdom.

Dear Kathryn, I felt your expression in my heart as if you had been present. I remember with sadness the day I heard the news. You have a great talent. The future is yours, keep writting, we will all enjoy reading you. Love Emile

As an avid fan of the extraordinary ice skating stars Katia and Sergei Grinkov, I was shocked and felt a personal loss at his sudden and tragic death.

Kathryn, you are so young. How is it you are able to express so ably and with such graphic images what a loving partner feels at the
moment "Till death us do part" that was believed to be decades away?

You display an uncanning talent for sharing deep feelings, what author Willard Gaylin, M.D. calls "Our Vital Signs."

Soulfully brilliant!
