I wish you were here

I don’t know if I’ll ever get “use” to you being gone. The day replays, the pain is relived. You were here one day and gone the next. Just gone. No goodbye, just gone. It just doesn’t seem fair.

Each holiday, each birthday, each vacation, each special occasion, just doesn’t feel the same anymore. It will never be the same again.

Far away from where you are, I miss you. I wish you were still here, not just a memory upon this earth.

In her bones

As she
turned off
the old lamp
she caught
a glimpse
of her tired eyes
staring back
from the mirror
her life flashes
before her eyes
lifes regrets
fill her heart
her once
strong words
no longer
carry their weight
as she
closes her eyes
for another long
empty night
the final
cold winter
sets deep within
her bones
