I look at pictures of you,
And think, there’s so much life there,
It cannot end, it can never end,
Has that always been the wrong premise
Or am I holding on to the form instead of
The everlasting within you that is now travelling
Across the skies, surrounding us all, because we want
To be close to you, wherever you are, I hope you know.
I barely slept last night. It happens.
You respected my boundaries to not
Come to me at night, I wasn’t scared.
But I was thinking of you, the worst week
Of my life, one that I never saw coming,
Out of nowhere, it takes one moment to
Lose it all, language is important, I know that,
I need to express the hurt and the hope,
At the same time, they go hand in hand,
I wish you so well, I can feel you ascending,
You become lighter, my heart is letting go,
And nothing ever hurt more.
