2am – and I’m awake..
Disturbed sleep…
unexpected silence
So quiet – no chatter
No shouting at friends
As Destiny evolves

Computer standing…
No lights, no fans
Keyboard unlit – mouse dead
Desk unattended
It’s all off…

It feels so strange
Just yesterday we were talking
and the day before,
sharing sounds
talking games…

Today – you’re gone…
Our home – is missing…
Someone…

Strong feelings of loss
And so much to remember…
Separation was expected
but expectation…
does nothing to still the emptiness

I need to get a grip
to find my way to…
understand…
The Boy is no longer..
You have become a Man
