My eyes search your reflection

But they do not find you

A vacant look has replaced one once filled with wonder

An empty smile devoid of life

Almost makes me think I’ve lost you


The human body is one full of wonders

Of mysteries that may never unfold

And when you look at me

I can see the universe again

And when I think of losing you

My chest tightens and the dams break and all of the water contained in my body flows through my eyes

Grief is strange that way

As if only the brink of death can bring you the appreciation of life

Life after death
