 How quickly time passes.
I blink.
It’s been an hour. A week. A month. A year.
When you left, time should have stood still.
It didn’t.
Forever is too far away.
Don’t get me wrong. I want forever with you.
But I also want today.
Today and tomorrow and tomorrow’s tomorrow.
But I only get forever.
I need to survive your loss until forever.

How quickly time passes.

The clock marches on, each tic, each toc, moving me both further away from your loss and closer to your eternity.
 Time can’t move fast enough. Time can’t freeze fast enough.
Life, breath and touch replaced by memories. Vapors of what once was.
Vapors of you.
They bring comfort. But they are not enough.
You are gone — full, at peace, without pain, embraced by joy.
I am here. Alone. A hope replaced your presence in my life.
I will never again be whole. Your love, your loss, they changed me.
How quickly time passes.
I blink. It’s been an hour. A week. A month. A year.
 Why won’t time stand still?
Why won’t time rush me back to you?

Forever is too far away.
