Been almost a year
Since you had to leave
With barely a chance to say goodbye
You were my anchor
In more ways than one
Lover teacher confidant soulmate
And now I wander
Sometimes with purpose
Other times aimlessly
As I always have
The journey a little more difficult
On this new kind of anniversary
With heartache and happiness
Come the seventh October
I will think of you fondly
Let my mind and soul fly
As we once did together
In a not so distant past

I've always thought there should be a word that replaces "anniversary" when referring to something painful in life. Sorry for your loss. Thank you for sharing with us.
