I think of you

I think of you

Every time I drive past our favorite places

I think of you

Every time I smell blueberries

I think of you

Every time I see two friends hug

I think of you

Every time I hear certain songs

I think of you

You’ve changed me twice

First when we met

Young, naive to the real world

Craving the comfort of a true friend

Second the day you died

Older, not always wiser to the world

A lifetime ago, decades too soon

I think of you

With every smile shared

I think of you

With every tear shed

I think of you

With every success

I think of you

With every setback

In think of you

As days turned to years

Your name crosses my lips

Easier, without the sense of guilt and loss

I have patched together the cracks

To the point of not being afraid to shatter

At a memory of you

I think of you

Encouraging me to grow

I think of you

Empowering me to forgive

I think of you

Entrusting me to adapt

I think of you

Allowing me to be

I think of you

Always
