Was - Poem by Janine Alyssa Navarro

This was the park bench
we sat in when we first met.
This was the place
where your hotdog sandwich hit the ground.
This was the tree
in which its leaf fell inside your backpack.
This was the mailbox
we ran into when we rode on our bikes.
This was the curb
where we sat and cuddled as we watched the evening sky.
This was the empty lot
where you taught me how to drive in your car.
This was the stuffed toy of a calf
that you got me as a Christmas present.

What happened to this
I’ll never know.
I’d like to leave a gap
after these
to keep their essence.
Dark is the sky
when I recall
what has happened after.
But no
we will forever live on,
happy and able.
We promised our story
to our friend, the universe.
This is just reality;
I will not let it
steal me of our joy.
I don’t have you,
you don’t have me
but once we did
in a big memory.
before my very eyes,
is the thought of us then.
I’m happy enough
satisfied if you will,
of a dream that was
