I suppose

all I can do

is feel it

when it comes,

and devote my life to loving

in a way he, too,

deserved to love.


for all those we have loved and lost

February 3, 2016



I’ve been thinking about loss, lately.


How forcibly it comes and takes away–

so difficult it is to let go.


People are my backbone

and thoughts of being uncomfortable around them

simply verifies this fact.


Yet I know my life,


is full

and there are no “buts.”


I will let go;

I’ve already started.
