My heart aches.
My chest tight, as if an elephant
is sitting on it,
weighing it down,
crushing my ability to breathe.
Death and loss fills my deepest soul,
a soul with no clue how to cope
with a pain that runs so deep.
I try to busy myself,
to distract my thoughts,
but there is always a time
when what needed to be done
and I am left with thoughts
How could such a small being
have filled my heart with such love?
The loss has left me
feeling so sad, empty and lonely.
I hope you stay with me,
watching over me,
I wish I could feel your warmth and breath
just one more time,
but the truth is
it would never be enough.
I hope you know how much you were loved.
Your love will always and forever be
in my heart.
