Dead but Never Gone

Something about you just standing there,
So alive and well in my memories comes
Roaring back into my lungs like the air
I breathe every day. You left the crumbs
Behind for me to follow because even
Though you are as dead as the soft soil
Beneath my delicate feet and the coffin
Buried deep you still make my blood boil
And my heart race. You still remind me
I am never alone as the strong whispers
Of the wind tell me we are finally free.
I always remember interlacing our fingers
Together like we finally belonged to
Each other. I could never forget your
Joyous laughter or the way that you
Held onto me as I was laying on the floor
Of the bathroom with no end in sight
To the tears. I constantly miss you and
All of the memories that gave me light
Instead of darkness. Your firm hand
In mine that gave me strength instead of
Giving me doubt. You were my ray of love.
