Not a day goes by that I don’t think of that night, and

Of the crowds of people waiting for me to

Verify what they already knew.

Every day I think of her and the way she

Made me feel invincible even when facing the toughest

Battles in life.

Every day I think about life without her and the

Raw loneliness and bitterness that comes with it.

 

Each time I close my eyes

I wonder if it was all just a dream, if

God might have sent her back because he saw the

Hurt in my family’s eyes, and the pain in our hearts.

Then I realize that she’s not coming back, and that

Earth will continue to turn and

Everyone will continue on with their lives. But I’ll

Never be the same person that I was before.  I’ll always want more

Time, at least another

Hour to call her Momma one last time and tell her that I love her more.
