Goodbye Stranger

Hello friend

I miss you
I love you
I wonder how you are

Things are different now
For you
For me

It feels as though
You now are a stranger
Maybe even dead to me

How can something
That used to be so intimate
Now feel completely foreign

I reached out
You were guarded
I shut down

Some days are easier
Some days the grief suffocates me
But time ticks by

Days turn to weeks
To months
And then to years

I’ll continue to think of you
Miss you
Love you from afar

I’ve seen a side of you I’ve never seen before
Because of that
I choose to guard my heart

My boundaries are strong
Like never before
It is difficult to do but it brings peace

You avoid the hard stuff
You don’t address it
It brings more pain

It hits me
I don’t know you anymore
You are gone

I miss you
I love you
I wonder how you are

Goodbye stranger
