I thought about you today

Your loving embrace

The way you smelled

All of the fun we used to have

                                           

I thought about your smile;

How it shined like the brightest peak at dawn

And glowed until dusk

Dark, saddening dusk

 

I thought of the nights we would spend together

Making food

Watching cartoons

Finishing crosswords

 

I thought about how beautiful you were

Even at your age

Even in a hospital gown

You were a beautiful spirit

 

Then I thought about the last month

In and out of hospitals

Visits only on Sundays

Not really knowing what was going on

 

Lastly, I thought about the last day…

“mammaw Good morning”

“are you awake”

“are you there…”

 

I thought about you today…

How I only see you in photographs

How it’s been five years since

The sadness

 

I thought about you today..

And there was nothing but tears.
