A year has past

A year has past since I lost you

And to be honest it’s been pretty tough

Adapting to a different outlook, quite literally

The daily bumping into things

The constant ‘I’m sorry’

The endless appointments

Which means I never quite forget

A year has past since I lost you

There have been some hilarious moments

Spinning round like a dog chasing their tail

Trying to see what is happening

Walking and talking, completely oblivious

That who I am walking with has stopped

Two metres behind me


A year has past since I lost you

You’ve missed 3 seasons

Summer and climbing mountains

Autumn and wrapping our coats around us

Winter and the cold whipping our faces

And now it’s spring

New life is emerging everywhere

It’s breathtakingly beautiful


A year has past since I lost you

And the world has gone crazy

I’m glad are not here to see

What has happened to people

As they fight over loo roll

Or the last avocado

Because the unknown is scary


A year has past since I lost you

And I’m still grieving, aching

But In darkness there is always light

And I am seeking out the light every day

Finding the strength to stand tall and breathe


A year has past since I lost you.
