Spotlight!: Fourth Time 

This is the fourth time I’m seeing today and my thoughts take me back

To all the memories and moments we cherished and all the ones we lack

This is the fourth time I pass your door and remember where your mirror sat

Today it’s replaced with my baby cousins laughter, I guess I should be grateful for that

This is the fourth time I can’t feel your touch in a new stitch you’ve woven

Or hear the whisper of your voice before I slumber reading the Bible verses you’ve chosen

This is the fourth time I haven’t cried or grieved because it’s all still new to me

That you’ll never see the wife I’ll become or see the mommy I’ll be

This is the fourth time I’m writing something to help cope with your absence somehow 

Maybe when I look in the mirror and see you in me I’ll be able to move on now.
