Why is there still this space inside me? I sigh at the cost of loss

I remember when you told me, how beautiful I am when I sleep.
How I am beautiful yet so unaware.
How you wake up earlier than me, and calmly stare-
in awe that you have me - grateful to have me

I try to remember you

and let you go

at the same time

And in the end

you learn

how to be strong
