Just Give Me A Minute

Just give me a minute
I might have remembered something or said his name
I am caught off guard.

Just give me a minute
My pain is strong
The grief covers over me.

Just give me a minute
The tears have started to fall
It’s too late to stop them.

Just give me a minute
As I wipe them away
And try to compose myself.

Just give me a minute
I am honoring the one I love
I am missing the one I lost.

Just give me a minute
Don’t say anything
Every word will be wrong.

Just give me a minute
My silence is a thousand thoughts
And I can’t speak.

Just give me a minute
Don’t judge my grief
Just let me be.

Just give me a minute
I need to remember to breathe
I just need to remember.
