Erase You

Sometimes I want to erase you
but then I stop and think
of all that would be different
glad you left behind so much ink

You often made me laugh
helped me find my confidence
challenged me intellectually
taught me patience and acceptance

Always considered my feelings
were so kind to the fallen
encouraged me artistically
helped me understand self harm and self care

You were my bridge and I was yours
I get it now and can't be mad
but when this sadness hits me
I just want you back
