i want to write you softer things now,
happier things
words to let you know that i'm
okay
(a letter of sorts)

or at least more okay
than i've been
since you left us
(i miss you)

i want you to know that i made it
once again
through the two hardest months of the year
i know you're proud of me
(thank you)

this time
i was much less alone
this time i had
shoulders to cry on
and faces
to laugh with
and people
to reminisce with
(there is still warmth)

and i did a lot of hurting
and healing
and breaking
and crying
and getting back up again
(there are still reasons to stay)

and if i'm honest,
as you'd want me to be,
it is still very hard.
living without you is still
the most painful thing for me
(i am able to tell people now)

but i'm okay, baby
sometimes i'm taking steps backwards
but my healing is not lost
and neither are you.
(i love you angel)

so together, let's wait for spring again
this year too.
(thank you for being here)
the words in parentheses read as a separate poem too
