Ebb & Flow

And it wasn’t that I was forgetting you

or that the space in my heart that you used to occupy was filled

It was that as time passed

with each new sunrise

I began to realize that your presence in my life

did not determine whether my eyes opened this day,

or any day.

That I was surviving.

I was facing each ebb and flow

and the sharpness that I felt with each breath

was now suddenly less.
