As Loss Passes You By

Have you ever found the past glaring at you under a cloudless sky

The sun a kind witness

To all you have lost


Have you ever looked at the clock

Noticed the paintings on the wall

Knowing this was the moment when you knew

He was gone

Hitting you at once

Like a car crash


Have you ever realized over time the magnitude of loss

Like the setting sun

Unable to stop or deny its presence

Memories planted like flowers along the way


Yet you find you arrive at the same destination regardless of the journey

Standing over the kitchen sink

Staring out at the garden

Wishing for just one more day

One last kiss
