I Didn't Know

I Didn't Know

I didn't know

How much I would miss

The sight of His car

Parked everyday

In the same spot

In a lot.


I didn't know

That every game

Of Minesweeper

Would remind me

Of the one who

Taught me to play.


I didn't know

That reading

My favorite book

Which was a gift from Him

Would one day hurt so much.


I didn't know

That he would never

Get to watch me follow

His advice for what I

Should do with my life.


I didn't know

How much my graduation

Photos would make me choke

Up because he drove nine hours,

Round trip, just to be there.


I didn't know

That staring at my writing

Tracking statistics

Would remind me so much

Of how interested he was in it.


I didn't know

That I'll never again

Be able to enjoy a circus

Because he took me to one,

Just once.


I didn't know

That my playing the piano

Would bring up past memories

Of him attending all my recitals.


I didn't know

That eating at Olive Garden

Would become a chore,

Because we once shared

A meal there.


I didn't know

That singing along

With the radio,

A habit we had shared,

Would make me cry

Every time I did it.


I didn't know

It would hurt this much

To lose a brother

I barely knew.

Telling me her stories and struggles and how this person handled them and how they worked or how they kept trying; but all...

crissy: Awesome work. The characters are so beautifully flawed and easy to relate to. The protagonist Bethany Hill is a woman that I would definitely want to meet in real life. The author has managed to make me visualize the story like a movie. The two time frames of past and present are also so beautifu...
