Its been years since your fingertips Have lived on my skin. Months and days since my taste Has been on your tongue. It feels like a lifetime since ive woken up To your smiling face , or fallen asleep to you Whispering quietly in the dark.
Why does it feel then, like only yesturday that i lost you? I swear time has slowed to a crawl since that day, I watched your mom cry as we both said our goodbyes to you, grasping each other , Clinging to the only person who loved you as much as I did.
I had packed your things away , And as hard as i tried ; the smell of you And your clothes wouldnt leave our closet . For a while i masked it as much as possible , Till standing breathing you in brought Me comfort.
I went to visit you today , it bothered me To see Your life narrowed simply down to Chiseled cursive in stone reading "A beloved son and brother " .
It made me want to tell everyone who you were About the things you did that mattered; The time i knew you , The dash between the dates .
And on the first warm day ; every spring ,ill feel you; with brand new flowers budding , I have peace of mind knowing There is always a new start , even after the harshest of winters.
