At some point, while submariner Mikhail Averin waited at the bottom of the Bering Sea to be rescued, he wrote this short letter to his wife.
No one has forever…
But I wanted more.
I wanted to give you more…more babies.
Love our son and the baby for both of us.
Tell them again and again that I love them, as I loved you.
Find another man to love, but love me as well.
For though I am but a moment for you…
You are my forever.
~ Mikhail Averin
