"What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?"
-Kat Grahm

Minutes, days, months.
They all pass by
Painfully slow.

135 days elapsed
Before I had even realized
Your absence.

When the news arrived suddenly
I stood there
Reluctant to accept it.

Remorse, grief, melancholy,
Anger, hostility, wrath.
So many emotions took over.

I wouldn’t attend the funeral.
How could I?
You had not told me you were leaving.

I keep expecting to see you.
To embrace you tightly
Just as usual.
But, every time
I’m left disappointed.

The days have grown easier, though.
I can breathe now.
But I’ll always miss you.
