There was August

There was August

written by: Michelle Ayon Navajas

 

they say time heals all wounds
that there is healing in losing
that there is more love even after
you’re gone to never come back.

how is it possible to love
someone you never even get to see
how is it possible to miss
someone, you never even get to hold?

but i had you the first sign of life
i had you the first time you breathed
i had you the first time you made me smile
i had you the first time you gave me hope.

i had you in every beat of my heart
i was meant to love you forever and always
i had you in every dream in the making
i was meant to make your dreams come true.

how i wish i could hold you in my arms
how i wish i could kiss you eagerly always
how i wish that i could hum you
a loving melody each day.

i could only wish, i could only hope
you were gone before i could even
breathe life to you, my dear
it should have been anytime from today.

you would have been an August baby
we would have enjoyed the splashing
mid-August rainwater; but you’re gone
gone even before there was August.
