See Me

I have a cluttered mind

Thoughts bouncing off the walls

Echoing in the darkness

It is like a song on repeat

It just keeps going and going

I wander through carefully

Like tiptoeing through a mine field

Afraid to wake your memory

But it is there

Staring at me

Demanding to be seen

Heard

Felt

Instead of fearing it

I take refuge in its warmth

There were good days

And there was love

That I will always treasure

Wrapping myself in these old feelings

Is like coming home after a trip

So glad to be in your own domain

Free to do as you want

I silently cry because you’re gone

And whisper to you

A happy birthday

To my one and only love
