29 Days

After 92 years

By Kelli Sheckler-AmsdenPublished 22 days ago 1 min read

29 days,

since you made your escape

closed the door to this life,

and just faded away

29 days,

I still dial your phone

it's hard to believe

that you are really gone

29 days,

a few days, shy of a month

92 years,

wasn't nearly enough

29 days,

and I know you're at peace

free from life's trials

and your souls been released

29 days,

without you calling me boo

finding out how hard

life is, without you

29 days,

with a lifetime of love

memories to remind me

just how lucky I was

29 days,

and I just want to say

I will never stop loving you


I will love you, always
