It’s been 1 year and 1 day

 since you left and we stayed 

There’s been hatred and betrayal 

since we lost you and each other 

The truth finally came out blatant and clear 

When you were gone, and so was the hesitation 

We’ve learned that self-seeking people  always blame others 

Now that the connecting link doesn’t exist 

In 4 days it will have been 3 years 

Since we lost the first one 

3 years that I have wondered how a family created by such a strong link could be broken, 

When you left.
