I thought that once you lose someone, it’s always instant, but it’s not.

I lose you in the morning, when I wake up, and remember you’re gone

I lose you every time that I remember the many times that I saw your name on my phone

I lose you when I’m hungry and decide to go out to eat rather than stay home and cook

I lose you every time that I play a video game instead of reading a book

I lose you when I’m off work and want to text, but it’s not the same.

I lose you every night, before bed, when I wonder how you’re doing, what you ate, and if you’re laying in bed the same way I am.

Losing someone has never been instant, I’ve lost you every day with every thing that reminds me of you.
