Dwelling...

It's been 72 hours since my friend left this world...
And yet the hole in my heart still remains...
Others have seemingly gotten over the pain...
Seemingly moved on with their lives...
Seemingly putting up a front to hide their feelings...
So why can't I do these thing?

Why does my heart still ache for my lost friend?
Why do tears still flow from my eyes days later?
Why do happy memories not ease my pain?
Why do I still cry over my missing friend?

I woke up this morning and saw the sun shine bright...
I step outside to feel the cool yet gentle breeze...
I go on with my day, making a note to take the dog for a walk...
Only to realize that there is no longer a dog to walk...
And then I am overwhelmed with grief...

Oh, Sacha...
Why did you have to go?
Why did you have to leave us so soon?
Why couldn't you have stayed a little while longer?
Your gentle warmth and love is sorely missed...
And the world is all the worse without it...

I want to move on...
I really do...
But I don't know how...
And I don't know...
If I ever could...
