The Anniversay - Poem by Christina L Johnson

I do not need any special day to bring you to my mind
In fact, I think of you everyday and ask
God why
The first year of your death I was
Crazy and numb inside
The second year I was angry
Most all the time
Looking for an Answer
That I would never find
The third year the anniversary of your death
I stand staring down where
You were laid to rest
No one will ever know the emptiness
I feel inside as my heartaches everyday
As I try to carry on
Knowing that each morning when I awake that you’re gone
