A poem on loss. For all those who have lost someone you love and wondered if you will ever get to see them again.
“I Simply Can’t Be Convinced”
I can’t be convinced I won’t see him again.
I simply can’t be convinced.
I feel him all around me
His very breath awakens my sixth sense.
I wonder when you’re so entwined
And someone you love passes through
If a part of them stays left behind
Running like veins inside of you
Not only is he all around me,
Stitching my wounds with his personal thread
He’s watching me as I sleep soundly,
Filling my dreams and emptying my head.
I know that I can’t see him
I understand that he’s no longer here
But by God did I believe him
When he said, “I’ll see you soon, my dear.”
The last words that we spoke in person
But our souls whisper every day
I just close my eyes
See his face
Hear his voice
