Once Again

Once again waking up, yet another year since you’ve gone.

Another year of smiles I can’t share,

hugs I can’t squeeze

And advice I cannot ask for.

Your picture was just that before,

Now it’s a reminder

A reminder of lost things

A smack in the face with the reminder

Yes, you’re still gone.

No, it’s not a dream

Life continues without you.

I wish I could be more accepting

I wish I wouldn’t get flooded with this angst and constant feeling that I forgot something,

Like I left the door open somewhere

It that feeling of missing a piece of the puzzle

It’s not just me that’s missing,

it’s the world that missed it too

the chance of your blooming

It’s the husband you didn’t marry

The babies you didn’t give birth to

The challenges you didn’t overcome.

The more time passes the more I miss you and the more I forget

Forget the sound of your laugh, the pitch of your out of tune singing

The way you smelled

All I have now is your face and that’ll have to do for now.

    A kindred heart, loved it but hate it at the same time (loss sucks.)
