Tucked Away

Tucked Away

Some pains are just too much to bear…

So, I tucked them away in a place called there.

Only allowing them to surface when the pressure can no longer be restrained,

Reaching the point of shedding tears in vain…

Tucked away in a place that is deep, yet not deep enough…

This is the pain of loss.

The loss that never returns…

I am left with memories that do last a lifetime,

Even if it’s only in my lifetime.

I miss you…

And the sheer acknowledgement of that alone,

Is honestly too much to bear!

I fancied myself being strong,

But not when it came to losing you…

To know…

I will never lay my head upon the lap of my mother again,

Yes, it is simply too much to bear.

So, I tuck you away again…

To that place that is so deep within…

Just not deep enough…

And I say see you later, for goodbye is too final…

Until we meet again…

I love you.IMG_0633 (2)
