he said he shouldn’t have stopped

He was sitting on a bench, been awhile since we saw one another, about my age, a nice man. My recollections are of him working hard at a local food store, always moving.

He said, at this recent meeting, that he stopped working and that almost immediaty began feeling bad, had a heart attack, and can’t go back now.

The last thing he said as I walked away was – “I shouldn’t have stopped.”
