Float

I wonder why it is
that we never
truly
grasp the weight
that something carries
within us
until after it is gone.
How we can look past
all the smiles
and laughs
and tears
and dreams
and failures
and not fully grasp
just how much
every
little
thing
matters.
But once something is gone
the void that is left within you
belies just how strongly
your heart felt for it.
Pity,
really,
that it takes the absence of it
to show you
just how much it meant to you.
