If I could see you one more time, I would laugh with you and be delighted to hear your laugh in return.
If I could hear your stories one more time, I would watch closely how the syllables form on your mouth.
If I could tell you one more thing, I would tell you how incredibly wonderful you are in this earthly life.
If I could I would, but I can’t for you have moved on to another realm, one humans must cross as finals.
If I could hold and hug you right now I’d give you the warmest embracing these arms could ever express.
Sometimes I think when there’s a loss such as you the heart’s depth of breaking seems so unbearable.
Yet, an echo, the heartbeat drumming in this achy muscle, my heart, holds close every memory of you.
