Another May

My memory ages you every
year, month, and this particular day.
Blurred like when we parted ways,
I’m left scrambling to not let you go.
Forgive me for saying
but I see you in everyone I meet.
A friend of mine has your eyes.
Another retorts and acts
similar to the way you used to.
Is it rude of me to think,
for that particular moment,
that I’m with you—again?

I hope that pieces of me
are found wherever you are.
Have you been getting the voicemails
I leave in your pillow?!
It’s just like you to not answer back.
Somehow,
you always find a way to make it up to me.
Sending blue jays outside my window.
Restructuring my poetry when I’m finished.
Assuring me—
you’re still here when I need you.
I’ve always preferred your mind than your body.

And just like that,
another year…another May.
It’s still not easy
but I’m trying.
I’ve grown to love
the smell of sandalwood.
Admittedly,
I still cry when I’m not supposed to.
I laugh and smile a little more.
I know it’s safe,
where you are.
But for old-time’s sake,
make sure to take care of yourself.
