Six Months On

My lovely friend, Laura, wrote this poem on the sixth month anniversary of Wavey's passing. She has an incredible ability to take my emotional chaos and put it into beautiful words.

"Six Months On"
for Shannon
By Laura Fabrycky


Ask yourself:
How long can you hold your breath?
How long under that dark wave,
down under its heavy
press, the sandy churn?
How long perdure?
How long withstand
the instinct to gasp,
watching for one break in the waves
to breathe that one life in,
any hopeful apparition,
as your lungs ache to burst with longing?
One never gets over the need for air.
