Bleeding Ink (1,246)

Lately you’ve been showing up in my dreams.

I wake up and all I can think is how unfair it is that you’re not here.

How many years have passed,

Remember quitting smoking?

I never realized I had picked up your addiction to Dr Pepper.

I suppose it’s keeping you real with me.

You’ve been showing up in my dreams

I tell you everything is fine

I turned out just fine

The years fade away

You were there on Monday

And gone on Thursday

And suddenly

All I had was a memory …

Sometimes I think I should find the old me

That I’m treading water

Then I remember

Things we always said

And I think about how happy you would be

That I made it

And I don’t hate it.

Hold on to your memories

They are all that keep us alive when we are gone…
