It has been 5 years and quite some time now,
But it still feels like I have just lost you.
I remember the phone ringing
and with it my life was forever changed.
Like a fresh wound just inflicted upon my skin,
the pain overwhelms me and shocks me to the core.
It is so terribly painful to think of
a world without you,
So I try not to think about it and
push it to the back of my mind.
Then I realized that it is truly difficult for me to even fathom
The idea that every second without you
is a reminder of what no longer remains.
I realized that just like ripping off a band-aid, the pain was still there
lingering and slightly above the surface.
What I would give to have
mere seconds with you,
To update you about all the new chapters in my life,
To laugh with you during the joyful moments,
ones that are filled with wonder and glee
To cry with you when life becomes dark and dreary
But original thoughts eventually re-surface
and you have to face the facts,
You are gone and have left me.
I will love you, always.
