Puzzle pieces left behind
Unanswered questions sorted in time
Uncharted sadness found its way
Into the aftermath the very same day
Circles of sparkle still kiss my neck
While mementos of you lie around
Caught beneath the scattered rubble
Reasons unknown for falling so hard
Landing was fatal, almost double
Ears ring with musical memories
Cloudy eyes open as I gasp for air
Crawling through parts of broken soul
Slowly gathering bits to repair the hole
Sun peeks out smiles at me
Moving past temporary tragedy
