via Daily Prompt: Gone

I read recently
that grief
is just all the love
we have to give
that we will never
get to deliver.
I’ve tried a million ways
to break the truth to myself,
but the fact remains:
I look for you
I look for your perfect pictures
with your perfect smile,
created by your perfect life.
I know I fabricated
all that perfection
in my mind.
To me,
you were perfect.
Now, you are just
perfectly gone.
