I want to tell you

Anger, anger,
anger, anger, anger!

In this moment
it all comes
crashing down
on me and it
crushes my lungs
and robs the
breath right
from my lips.

And then again
am I really sad for you,
or for me?

Sometimes it burns,
this sadness,
and I can’t fill up
the emptiness or dismiss
these ever-present thoughts
of you, of loving you
and holding you in
my arms and kissing the
top of your head,
and you smell so sweet
like all little babies do.

I love you, I love you
I love you, I love you…

Most of the time I just love you
and crave you near 
like you used to be
so very long ago…
I want to hug you,
know you again.
I want to 
keep my precious memories
dear to me as they are now
still get to have you growing older
like other children do.

I want to tell you how much I love you.
I want to tell you that.
