For 20 Years, I Was…

11 Mar

Image result for 20 years


Today it’s been 20 years.

I got the phone call that you were gone.

I didn’t understand what gone meant.

You left town?

I wish it was that simple.

You died.

You died.

You were gone.

A heart attack at 25.

I couldn’t believe it.

I was paralyzed.

I was devasted.

I was…

I ran out of words to accurately describe my emotions.

For years I was..

I tried to date others.

But I was.

I tried to love again and for years I couldn’t

Because I was.

I couldn’t stop looking at your picture.

I thought the pain would never end.

I just was…

But eventually time healed me.

I will never forget you or us.

I miss you and what you were.

I miss you and what you could’ve been.

20 years is a long time now.

But I miss you..
