Almost – Written Wednesday 31stt October 2012 (Aged 37)


it feels like they are distant
a memory
a book i once read
a programme i once saw
a phrase i once said
and then,
it feels like,
they they have never been away
those conversations
when there is not anything to say
but it is those conversations that mould
your very days
and i cannot believe
that they are not here
i imagine them speaking
as they are still near
hoping that i can make those memories
present and totally clear
sometimes it feels far too immense
and grief,
well it feels such an incredible expense
a loss so natural,
suddenly, the suddenless does not make sense
