Saying goodbye was.
Talking about you isn't difficult,
Not having you here is.
Remembering you isn't painful,
You being forgotten is.
Looking through your pictures, the only pictures we have, isn't unbearable,
Not having any to treasure is.
Celebrating your birthday isn't being stuck in what could have been,
It's enjoying what did,
even if it was short lived.
Pausing every year on this day isn't unhealthy,
it's pretty much all we know to do.
12yrs ago today
I held you in my arms
For the first and last time.
From that day on
we've been missing you always,
my sweet forever baby girl, Mia Marvelle!
