at times i think i am forgetting then a soft clinging cape of guilt molds itself to my body how could i forget you my love my life my forever man those occasions fade now eased with the forgiveness of passing time
come september beware the sadness the deep abiding sense of loss rushes in like the spring tide catching me unaware sweeping me from my feet threatening to drown me with memories of you fear clutches at my gut forgotten pain stings my eyes
i struggle through the passing months of memories of anniversary, births and death missing and remembering feeling once more the empty ache of torment and despairing loss until a year new born brings hope and healing and i may breathe again without you my forever man
