Six Months

Milestones weigh heavy
Like a millstone
Around your neck.
Feelings intensify,
Memories magnify,
The Loss seems larger.
It’s not.
Today transports us
Back to your bedside
Where we said our final
Time is a healer
But also a stealer
Blurring the lines;
Putting you in soft focus.
But never forgotten.
Six months on
I remember
You’re larger than life.
