Last Christmas, I made a series of posts about losing loved ones in death. Particularly the death of a boyfriend. Every now and then whenever I remember him, a poem is born. And now, I remember him.

Do you know the feeling when a joyful gift-giving season turns into a long never-seeming-to-end lonely winter? The person or people you love cannot be with you because they have already departed. I never knew what it meant to grieve over the death of somebody until then. It has been two years actually. I tried my luck in the game of love, but I could not replace him. All the what-ifs still inhabit my mind. And partly because of time element and distance I am feeling worse.
