Everyday Jamie

Everyday Jamie
I think about you
everyday Jamie
when I get up
when the dreams end
I see your face
everyday Jamie
your absence lives
in the deep appreciation I have
for my son-
I breathe in
everyday Jamie
I push out
every day without you Jamie
I drive & cry & scream
ripped open wide
convince myself
daily, control my opening aperture
use my breathing so I
don’t fall where there’s
only fear
everyday Jaime
every day.
