Will it ever get better? The loss of someone you love? Those moments, you can only think about what was and will never be. These emotions were transferred into poetry by Zac Brown. This is his poem I’ll never forget you.
The realization, that things are different. Not different in a good way. The painful truth that settles in, after a loved one has gone away. This can be someone who died or a relationship that came to a painful ending.
At one point, there is only the realization that you need to move on. This is hard and Zac wrote down his feelings about this process. How he coped with this all. The guilt of moving on is sometimes strong. So is the pain about this all.
Zac writes about this journey and how he copes with the need to move on and how to deal with the guilt that comes with moving on. This all, to stay strong. It’s not an easy task to perform.
Zac managed to write a poem that is about these emotions after the loss of someone he loved. Here is someone, who finds himself tossing and turning, or as he calls it One moment I’m here and the other moment I’m there. He finds himself afraid to love again. That will be someone, who needs his strength.
I’ll never forget you
One moment I’m here,
And one moment I’m there,
The woes hit me in fear,
But only back then I was scared.
Afraid to love, afraid to hate.
I stayed in the middle of that,
Awful downplayed and fearful state;
A full on downgraded tearful plate.
But enough of that now,
I’ll bring up my gratitude,
One thing I static reviewed,
And kept the same for you.
I mistake strength for numbness,
As it lingers, I taketh my compass,
Follow it, watch it and remember,
Numbness is a lie, you won this sir.
And you chose the battle,
And you have the tattoo, and you,
Prodded the cattle and in fact you,
Are allowed not to feel for it anymore.
Back then it was real but now, no more,
And it’s okay if it doesn’t make you sore anymore,
You’ve healed and you’re stronger in your core.
Now go give your love to another ‘Lenore’ who needs your strength,
That’s what you were made stronger for.
