Day Ten

To those who have lost loved ones

Who have experienced the pain of goodbyes

Who can’t imagine how to live with this absence

Whose mind are running wild with memories

Memories of words, touch, looks, and moments

“I remember the first time I met her”

“Oh, I wish dad was around to witness this day”

“I didn’t even say goodbye”

I feel your pain

I sure know how it feels

Knowing I’ll never hear his words again

Knowing we never got to say all the things we had in mind

I wish things were different

That you didn’t have to deal with the pain

The vacuum

The void

The loneliness

To all who lost loved ones

Mother or Father

Brother or Sister

Uncle or Aunt


Daughter or Son

Wife or Husband

I admire your strength

And I pray for you

I am theimisiOluwa; and I appreciate your strength.
