Lost to October

Weeks gone missing.

Pushed away by the struggle to love and accept

Missing in the daily doubts and defeats

Neglected for the fury of masqueraded cries for help

Adrift in a shorter tipping point of patience

Squandered in piles of data

Surrounded yet satisfied by hours of warm exchanges with parents

Caught in the strong winds of a day of service and songs yelled in unison

Squeezed between heart wrenching returns and memories of letting go

Embraced by family celebrating a life called back

Found again in sweet refrain from kittens, ghouls, and blueberry pies shared with neighbors and friends.
