Never the Same

You never did say much
During any of the holidays
Grunting at everything we touched
Disapproving looks  at all we would say
Sometimes you’d argue with us
Before retreating away
Because we would cuss
And nobody made you stay
But without you
The holidays seem so hollow
I never knew
That you were this family’s glue
I didn’t think anything
Could extinguish your flame
But cancer clipped your wings
And now things will never be the same

Been a while

Hey everyone it’s been a while since I’ve had the time to get on here. What with my job over the summer, and nursing school kicking my ass this fall I haven’t really had the time to do any writing. But with my semester having come to an end I thought I would try and get back into this. I just wanted to apologize for my absence and say that i’m looking forward to seeing what you all have written.
