Monday Mourning

Another work week
breaks on the horizon.

Despite the sunlight,
we wish to sleep through
what the day brings.

In time, we begin
to busily prepare to face it
forgetting to commemorate you.

Then it dawns on us.

We hang our heads in sorrow
remembering your death
already one year ago.

We think of your smile
that was as beautiful
as the morning.

We try to live today
to make you happy
because on this day,
you deserve that much.
