Sappy Poem time with Kim

This weekend was very depressing. I kept wondering why it was hitting me after the anniversary until I realized that today was the day we buried her last year (12th). This year I see how truly long that was from the time of her death until her funeral and it makes me sad and angry that our grieving was so interrupted. Last year I wanted to scream when the service was not what we planned and when what we asked for did not happen. Last year I watched as they lowered my child's body into her grave. I always know where she is now and I don't want her to be there. Yesterday I could not make myself get out of bed. I just lay there in the dark listening to all the sounds and wishing I could hear her voice. Doug and Jared were busy pulling the concrete base out of the column out front so I was able to tell them that I just felt bad and stay in bed. Jared kept coming to hug me. Today I couldn't even make myself get up for church. I just felt like a blanket of depression was settling over me. I miss her so much. I want her back so much. So as often happens when I am in my dark place, I write about her. So this is my poem from today. I know it isn't the best but it is from my heart simple as it is.

Did You Know

Did you know I loved you,
Every day of your life?

Did you know I miss you?
The pain cuts like a knife.

Did you know I still see you?
I search for you in a crowd.

Did you know I still cherish you?
I try not to cry too loud.

Did you know I still love you?
Your leaving did not change that.

Did you know I miss you?
And I still want you back!
