Eight and a half months of togetherness

We could have been forever-ish

Instead, I live with a hole in my heart

While you get to sing and dance and play the harp

 

Not once did we get to take trips to the beach

Or draw on each other’s faces while asleep

Not once did you get in trouble in class

Or go through the pain of wearing a mask

 

I’ll never know why death took you and not me

But for now, I guess I’ll have to face reality
