You are gone.
No longer here.
In fact, you are nowhere to be found.
Occupying yourself in the past tense…
It is the new way to describe you.
We are forced to retrain the brain.
Occupying ourselves with the past tense…
“Remember when,” is how we begin conversations.
Rightly so, you are the center of those.
Filling ourselves with memories, while
Occupying time with the past tense…
Frozen and unable to move,
We hold tightly to the idea of you.
Building angels in your absence,
Occupying life with the past tense.
Be good to each other,
