12 years

by Em   Dec 1, 2017

12 years have disappeared before
my very eyes
since my world crumbled and we said our goodbyes -
I've crashed and burned a million times since then
wishing I could speak to you and see you again -
there's a trillion things I need to speak to you about
as I know you're the only person who'd drag me out
of this numbness I'm feeling simply with your smile -
with you by my side I'd be OK even if for a little while
but it's been 12 years since you lost your fight
and I lost you - my shining star, my guiding light.

    This brings tears in to my eyes. The loss of someone very dear to our heart it is painful. Sometimes we would give anything to have one moment to say what we have to say. Add to my favorite. Hugs to you.
