“so very sorry”
but how do i grieve for something that was not yet mine?
how do i grieve for something that i never knew?
an unexpected gift
silently hoped for
i took some time to believe it
but i held onto a quiet promise: two blue lines
i tossed around visions of a different future
a future where we would be five
already so blessed
i felt greedy for wanting so much joy
taken in a river of blood
tears wash away my pain
leaving a hole where once there was hope
i am empty
overflowing with love
