It hasn’t been easy, this path.
A journey of a thousand steps
halted mid-step by your departure.
Stumbling along over jagged pieces
of my broken self that still can’t
grasp the full extent of your passing.
This journey is full of tears and wails,
triggered by a reggae beat,
a drum roll or at the sight of
eyes filled with the same warmth as yours…
but you are nowhere to be found for
the usual comfort…
