Thoughts on Grief XXI

44 days

Since you’ve been

Gone

One day more

Than you spent in the hospital

The last two times…

You have been pain free

Longer now than you

Endured such severe pain

The thought gives me some

comfort

I can’t really say

That my pain began when yours ended,

Because my heart hurt every day

Seeing you in pain

Now pain remains

But it’s only mine

My heart shattered

I will grieve for you

In one form or another

Until I take my last breath

With tears

With memories

In dreams

Sometimes in public

Always when I’m

Alone

You are part of me
