Dear Cake,


It's been 8 days since you've seen him or heard his voice. Your shadow tells you it's OK to miss him. It's OK to want to see him walk through the door, give you a kiss, acknowledge the kids, & then zone out for the rest of the night on his phone/computer. It's OK to crave his touch. These feelings are OK to have; they are part of grieving.


But.....


When will they stop?


You never listen when I'm talking

You're always waiting to hear yourself


Well, how am I doing?

"How do you feel?"

To be honest with you

Simply ill

Simply ill

Simply ill

Simply ill

Simply ill


I had a tumor

It never healed

It just stayed there

Until it killed

'Till it killed

'Till it killed

'Till it killed

'Till it killed

'Till it killed
