One More, Many More

I realized I stopped writing poems about you
and your death
and what it did to our family. 
Was the distance making grief easier,
or just making me forget faster?
I can't believe I stopped,
spaces between thoughts grew greater and sometimes so did guilt. 
I was going to change things
to make it up,
I just wasn't sure when.
