we’re in istanbul.
a city with four seasons
of gorgeous weather
no matter the condition.
you’re in the sky.
we can see you
through the blueness,
through the clouds.
we can feel you
through the wind,
the sway of trees.
we can feel you alive
through the sound of our laughs.
we can sense your peace
through the cloud of you
that formed in our chests
when you left
and had turned from grey with grief
to white with acceptance and peace.

and you,
you can feel our love for you
through our love for one another.
you can feel our love for you
through our love for life
and courage to enjoy it
even when part of us
is not with us right now.
you can feel our love for you
through our humor and laughter
that are so alive they remind us
that we are too.

and you,
you can feel our longing for you
when our hearts drop at the mention
of your name.
you can feel our longing for you
through our silence when they ask
about you.
you can feel our longing for you
when we go to bed and our tears
fall in the dark.

you know.
you know more about us
than we do about each other.
and in a way,
it’s better.
it helps us be okay.
not speaking of our pain for you
allows us to feel that it’s okay
to be happy.
and you are too precious
to be spoken of in grief
anyway.
