Fragments of you
In these early hours
When my mind is restless,
Before the sun rises to greet the day.
Reflecting on a face that will never grow older with time
I hear memories of you whispering to me
Longing for a connection
Severed through death
Imagining the possible
Pondering the peace you were searching for
Which was just out of reach
Stretching like the stillness shrouding my consciousness.
Praying for comfort
That eludes me too,
In the darkness.
For anyone who is struggling with their mental health right now, know that you are not alone. There is hope.
