Beautiful Words

I am out of beautiful words.

The pain of missing you weighs heavily on me,

and I cannot sleep.

Nightmares of you, lost or in need,

tear at my mind and heart,

waking me in a cold sweat, afraid to fall asleep again.

Where are you?

Should I look toward the stars? In nature?

How can it be that I will never hold your hand again?

Everything hurts and there is no remedy.

You were, you are, a part of me.

But you are gone,

and I am still here.

Here, but no longer whole.

    And yet they are always beautiful and more. Poignant, true, discomforting, and yet comforting. I love you

    “Daniel” will always be a beautiful word. Wishing you some peace and comfort and moments of joy within the grief and pain.
