It is knowing presently there is a gaping hole within you.
It is knowing you can no longer make new memories together.
It is knowing you can no longer hear their voice.
Speak to them and have a conversation
It is knowing you can no longer feel their touch.
Knowing you have to keep on living the life you both dreamt off.
It is knowing for that moment you’ll have to face the world alone.
It is knowing you can no longer grow old together.
Milestones you’d like to share with them and yet can’t.
However, it is also…
Reliving moments and knowing you had them.
It is being thankful you shared the most precious commodity of all:
It is sharing stories to others, the memories, laughter, lessons
And dumb moves.
It is knowing they cared and loved you.
Which is why for that moment you felt loss and keenly so.
Loss is natural, it may not be great but everyone has had an encounter with it.
It is neither good nor bad.
It just is.
But through loss, we are reminded of what we have and can gain.
Possibilities of what we can give.
And leave when it is our time to be someone’s loss.
So with every day you’ve got, make it count…
