- What a powerful line. I felt a sort of comfort in knowing that, even if we cannot mourn the way others are able to, and distance keeps us from visiting the grave or memorial or family, this person close to you will not be forgotten. Though that brings heartache and other ranges of emotion that are difficult to put into words. You'll think of them with a connection will last through the hardest parts of knowing they are no longer physically on the earth. I also felt the truth in realizing it doesn't matter how many years it's been, it still feels like it just happened, and maybe like you could just pick up from where you left off, a moment you wish was never one that faded.
This was a heartbreaking write, and hopefully their memory can be still be honored, though the pain is still there.
Thank you for your thoughtful comment poet, it's surprising just how much everything reminds me of them. I just hope I am making them smile, in whatever realm they may be, by continuing on and trying to be happy.
