National Poetry Month~Everyone and Everything vcl©️

There are moments
When everyone is not enough
And everything breaks our hearts

Those moments crash into us
No warning, we stumble Into the abyss
Perhaps we weren’t watching, just singing silly songs.

Grief pours from us
We stumble around blindly, carefully
Not touching anything

For although everyone reaches out
They cannot replace the one
That we know was everything.

Inhale ethos ©️vcl

Today I am mindful of memories.                                          of warmer climes, warm breezes                                      cold lemonade and daisies.
I feel regret for things that no longer are
Or will be exactly so again.

As I focus on the memories,                                                        I press them to my heart
Crushing the sweet fragrance                                                   of their blooms and inhale
Ethos.
