Shifting

Feelings shift and change.
Just like relationships change.
The passing of someone you hold close to your heart
is an experience that differentiates you from a group.
It's the feeling of standing outside a club
that doesn’t know how you feel.


You reading a book but when, at the end,
you don’t get a satisfactory feeling.
You watching a movie and the main character
does not go on to have a happy ending.
Every day is a reminder of how they're not here
 to share this world with you.
All that's left are the fond bitter sweet memories
you have of them.
All the things that mattered in this lifetime
don’t have an essence any more.
Time has a way of reminding you
that they are no longer here.
All you can do is assure yourself that they
no longer face the troubles of this troublesome world.
Grief lasts as long as love lasts.
And it's going to shift and change.
Just like how feelings shift and change.
