Nothing ever stays the same
Family going,
Never coming back
Tears fall
Goodbyes made
Why won’t the world stop spinning?
Sorrow, joy
Blended into one
Leaving,
For a better place
Why can’t we go as well?
Tears dry
Life moves on
Events fade
Time blurs
Were they ever here at all?
A memory
A smile
A place
Smacks me hard
Like colliding with a wall.
Tears wet my pillow again,
Freed by fresh pain.
I will never forget completely,
Though nothing stays the same.
