Forgotten 

It doesn’t always heal. Time doesn’t always mend.

Some losses are lost for too long. 

Too long, too far gone. 

Not one day. 

Not one time.

Have I forgotten to mourn. 

I mourn all the losses. 

I mourn all things taken away. 

I mourn all things without you. 

Now nothing is the same. 

Sometimes the pain,

It grows like the cancer.

Grows like the kind that robbed you away.

With so many questions

now left to me,

Left forever unanswered. 

You had more left to teach.

I had more I hoped you would see. 

Now we have the calls.

The calls unanswered, 

The calls never returned.

Everything right where you left it. 

Six years passed.

I continue to mourn this.

This loss of my father.

This loss that can’t be forgotten.

This loss of my father.

This loss that can’t be forgotten.

About Megan Peacock
Yes, Yes, without the oops! Must go faster. Checkmate... Yeah, but John, if The Pirates of the Caribbean breaks down, the pirates don’t eat the tourists. Did he just throw my cat out of the window? So you two dig up, dig up dinosaurs? I gave it a cold? I gave it a virus. A computer virus.
