Then came the awful moment
when my heart finally understood,
I’d never see you again.
Not in this life.
In that moment,
I felt your absence all around me,
and along with it,
the absolute certainty,
that nothing could have
prepared me for this.
For the goodbye,
I never thought I’d have to say,
for the loss,
I never thought I’d have to feel,
for the emptiness,
I never dreamed I’d have to carry.
