Everything is Blue (2019)



Everything is blue.

The shadows, the bushes, the snow reflecting against the sky.


Everything is blue.

My heart, my mind, my emotions.


Everything is blue.

Not my once favorite and cheerful shade, but a dark and sorrowful one.


Everything is blue.

It was a year ago today he said goodbye. None of us were ready, that made it harder. But day after day I see his face. In those shadows, in that herd of sheep. Questions I have for him play over in my mind. The things I do remind me of him.


Everything is blue.

I deny that he is gone. He can't be gone. I tell myself he's only gone for a little while; I will see him again soon. But soon never comes.


Everything is blue.

I ask God for help, but it seems He doesn't listen. Or maybe I'm not listening to Him. I can't hear Him through my sobbing.


Everything is blue.

The pain, the grief, the sorrow.


Everything is blue.

It's colored on my face. Through my entire body. How do I move on from losing someone so important. So close. The one who taught me so much, about everything, and I still have more to learn from. The one I talked to everyday. He told me it made his day to hear the smile in my voice. I don't think there is a smile in my voice anymore.


Everything is blue.

He was our rock. The one who held everything and everyone together. Will it all fall apart now without him?


Everything is blue.

When will the blue go away?


Everything is still blue.
