A poem from my book, I Forgot About Me, plus the book is free on Amazon (last day)

I wrote my poetry book, I Forgot About Me during some of the darkest, saddest days of my life. I experienced a health crisis that I wrote several posts about, then about six weeks after that, my mother passed away. I felt like I was suffocating under the grief. One thing that helped me to get through this time was reading. I wrote this book because I knew there were other people out there who experienced the kind of loss that I did. If I can make one person feel understood or less alone, then the effort of writing and publishing the book was worth it.

This is one of the poems that I wrote about my grief. Don’t worry, the book covers other topics as well.


Your absence is a presence

In my home

In my soul

I can’t forget.

A shadow on my heart

In my dreams

In my mind

I can’t forget.

An ache in my chest

In my heart

In my spirit

I can’t forget.
