if I could just go back

if I could just go back
I know she would still die
but if I could just go back
to have a few more minutes
when she wasn’t dead

just to be alive in this world
one more time
without her death on my shoulders
without her absence on my heart, on my soul
in my bones and in my blood

just to remember what it’s like
to spin on this sacred planet
with all of that hopeful momentum
just ripping me apart

  1. I am so sorry for your loss. I am grieving for my daughter and your words are very comforting.


    1. I am so sorry to hear about your daughter, too. It is the worst kind of heartbreak.
