I gave you

a name


was that to console you

or console me

honestly I don’t know


everyone learns differently

everyone grieves differently


I’m lost in a vast sea

with no map

navigating emotions


you’re my lifeline

    Names are very powerful … perhaps it’s just fanciful on my part, but, I’d like to believe that by naming him, you were tied together, and his name will be the most sacred thing you possess.
