April brings memories upon memories for me: Technicolor detail of the last week of one of my best friends’ life. Is it any wonder I have a half-wish to sleep through it and wake up in May? Of course, I will be fine once this week is over, but that’s little consolation, as I have to get there first.
For some it arrives with hardly a whisper
Another month, the bringer of Spring
For me, it arrives well before
Accompanied by a siren song
Keep away from the rocks
Don’t let the memories engulf you
Don’t let it claim you
You are stronger than you know
April brings Easter
April brings a desire to curl up and sleep through
All the while, I know I can’t
I must trudge on,
And brace myself
For April’s arrival.
Wishing you peace and strength on your journeys,
