One year out [Jun. 8th, 2015|09:31 am]
One year out it still hurts, but the ache is more of a low, throbbing one with fewer of the sharp, breathtaking jabs.

One year out the sharp, breathtaking jabs still come.

One year out I can remember the last day vividly.

One year out the details of the days leading up to and following that last day are jumbled.

One year out I wonder how much of what I remember of the last day is actually what happened.

One year out I remember the scent of her, the sound of her voice, her impish smile.

One year out I still have times when I am staggered that it really did happen.

"Now We Are Six"

A. A. Milne
When I was one,
I had just begun.
When I was two,
I was nearly new.
When I was three,
I was hardly me.
When I was four,
I was not much more.
When I was five,
I was just alive.
But now I am six,
I'm as clever as clever.
So I think I'll be six now
Forever and forever.
