Everywhere

When you loved me
I thought
This is everything
& it was 

Everything

Even though in
The thereafter
I was broken

However
Nothing
Can be completely
Undone

As heartbreak
Travels through me
Time & again
I learn to remember
Who I am

Recognizing
That somehow
Even when it’s
Hard to feel
Love is

All around
Everywhere

Being
