"Occasional" Reminders
by Stephanie Marottek

There are occasions
that painfully remind
of the losses we've suffered
and of the completeness we'll never find.
When I think of them,
A special day can turn sad,
remembering their brief lives
and all we could've and should've had.
A moment in time
when I wonder how it could be
if they were here to share
in this day, in this revelry.
Happy occasions and I am
a bit distant and tears run
Please try to understand
the I weep for the missing ones.
There are occasions
when I'm painfully aware
of how life has wronged me
and of how it's so unfair.

Inspired by Christine
