It’s been


Ten days.

So much has changed.

My whole world has been

Turned upside down.

Every day you aren’t here to

Wash my favorite shirt;

Make my favorite meal;

Play my favorite song;

I’ve felt it in my heart.

Every day that I wake up to

Tears me apart

Just a bit more.

I was a puzzle;

You figured me out;

And now that you’ve left

I’m coming undone again.

You see . . .

You weren’t the only one who would never smile again.

You weren’t the only one who was buried.

You weren’t the only one whose heart stopped beating.

Ten days ago…

You weren’t the only one who died.

Inspired by a little old man I saw, kneeling at a grave today, with a fresh bouquet of flowers. ❤

INFP who names inanimate objects, loves to laugh, and is a proud old soul. You can often find her planning out her next crazy project, hugging books, or telling stories about her day that *may* be a little exaggerated.
