The day I said goodbye.

My heart is reminded what day this is

I don’t need a calendar for that

It remembers it like it was yesterday

It’s the day that I first became sad

And although I feel my sadness

And it is in everything I do and say

I am not my sadness

And it has stopped consuming my entire day

I have learned to find joy

In the smallest of things

It is often my memories of you

And the smiles they bring

As I cross this next mile marker

Of the track that is paved with grief

I have good days and bad days

Some days my grief is a relief

I remember this day

As the day I said goodbye

I think I’ll go take a minute

And have a really good cry



Written on the second anniversary of my brothers death
