why did you have to leave? sometimes i forget that you did but i'm proud of myself for that it took too long to realize forgetting would make it easier. adjusting to life without you was hard. reflecting on life with you is harder. and i can't help but wonder where i would be now if you were still here to guide me. please come back, but also don't. i've made it too far and you've been gone too long. if i had to guess where you were, i'd say you were chasing the sun and dancing with the stars. if i ever need to reach you, maybe i'll meet you there someday.
I hope you enjoyed this piece! Please let me know if you have any feedback on this poem, or any writing challenges you’d like to see me try out in the near future. Stay safe and healthy. 🙂
