You were an occurrence,
an incident in my timeline.

You altered everything,
knocking my life askew
and showed me love
when I didn’t think
it existed.

If there is anything
I’ve gained by
losing you,
it’s a renewed sense of time.

And how
it never seems to stop,
speeding further
and further
away from you.

Every second,
your memory fades
into the emptiness,
and I’m one step closer
to a life without you.
