One year

One year

A blink of an eye

And yet, an eternity…

Looking back, sadness, sorrow, loss

Memories, warm and soft, tender, painful

Upheaval is so great, the empty chasm so wide

And yet, moments of joy dash in and out, over and under

A smile graces my face and a tear rolls down my cheek

At times the mourning is distant, like dancing clouds on the tops of the mountains

Then again the grief frequently so close it takes my breath away

And then the kind rush of a child’s voice, a husband’s touch, the nuzzle of a sweet canine

I am reminded that I must go on, in spite of the gaping hole I feel inside

Each moment, knowing I was loved

And knowing I loved you.
