Nine Years LaterĀ by Kori | Written 1/19/17

My thoughts aren’t coherent.
Five little words that always brought joy,
Your loving, “Hey, how are you dear?”
Breaking down wasn’t an option till I saw you.
Tear filled hugs were never my thing.

my heart stopped,
my body shook,
and my mind went numb.

Unsuspecting chills, rattled my bones.
Was that a calm reassurance from you?
Please let me know that you’re okay.
