They lied when they said time heals all wounds,
Or maybe there hasn’t been enough time away from you.
Almost two years to the day,
yet I still find myself keeping tears at bay.
Why did you go? Why couldn’t you stay?
You were just coming around,
You seemed okay.
Yet, I know deep down that feeling you felt,
I often feel it too and left with a remorseful head,
Full of regret,
I could have said something,
I did nothing instead.
I’ve learned a lot while you’ve been away.
I was too late,
I should have never received a call that day,
A life full of guilt because my mind mended,
after you chose to escape a life unfinished.
I couldn’t help it,
Our genetics tell all,
Those months I had been suffering,
just like you,
I begged for it to leave.
My life continued while yours departed,
Waking day to day,
to a photo of your smiling face,
with that everlasting tear,
that may never be tamed.
It doesn't feel like two years since my brother passed. I can't help, but miss him every single day. I don't know how to get over it. So I wrote this down really fast after a big crying spell.
