The All


Kathy Mullins Dingus


The pain of losing the one I loved
Has never dimmed a whit
The empty feeling deep inside
Has only lessened a bit.
But the knowing that the losing
Isn't really lost at all,
Realizing that they're still around
Always a part of the "all"
All of the ever, that was to be
All of what made you
Is now part of me!

"I still smell your cherry tobacco smoke wafting on the air. Such a sweet smell, maybe I'll go get your pipe and smoke it in your honor!"
