Is this a dream?
Or are you really not here?
It feels like a nightmare – nothing feels real.
Is it true I won’t hear your voice again?
Unless it’s a recording.
I won’t see your face in the flesh, pictures are all that’s left.
No more touch of your skin or smell of your scent.
No more laughing till our stomachs hurt, all the jokes left unsaid.
Grief came too soon, no one prepares you for this.
The empty feeling came with your departure
and now it’s never leaving.
I’ll trade anything in the world for one more day with you.
But they said you’re in a better place now.
And that will have to do.
With Love, Heidy
