The memory lies just below the surface.
If I looked closely enough I could see it, but I choose not to see.
Too much, too soon, too painful.
I know the day will come, but please God, tell me it doesn’t have to be today.
I miss you like I’ve never known missing.
Unbelievable void through which nothingness continues to blow.
Someday I will decide to see it, but that day is not today.
I remember your voice, your face, your laugh.
I remember the you that I knew for a lifetime.
I know you are in a place of peace.
I hope to be within me someday as well.
