On the first day, we were young,
And free to do as we wished.
Our friendship blossomed into fun,
My insecurities vanished.
On day two, we shared a kiss,
A surprise to me and you.
A day apart was one to miss,
As our love for each other grew.
The third day came and we were wed,
In front of all our friends.
That evening we first shared a bed,
Knowing not all that’s good ends.
On the fourth, I held him in my arms,
Our baby, small and weak.
I swore to you he’d see no harm,
As you left me in your sleep.
I don’t recall day number five,
Existence hard to bear.
I could hardly believe I was alive,
Life no longer yours to share.
The sixth day came and our little boy left,
University called his name.
All alone, I felt bereft,
Life is one sick game.
But on day seven something altered,
A light came shining through.
My heart, its beating long since faltered,
Remembered life with you.
