The visions in my head

Everywhere I look

I see them

small reminders of

a life before now

a time before change

sadness overtakes

my heart and soul

it misses what

is not there anymore

I learn to embrace it

the grief that comes

and goes like waves

to then step forward

into a new present

a different reality

I move forward

one step at a time

down the path

continuing the journey

of life's adventure

emotion comes again

though lesser in

its intensity

it fills me with loss

and hides my hope

until I finally decide

to breathe out

letting go and

stepping back into

what my future holds
