Something is Missing
By Christina Moon 
In loving memory of ShyVon Fallon Moon 
I woke this morning, took a deep breath...
Today, I won’t be with you.
I left the house...
Felt I forgot sornething, but I didn’t
I held your picture as I listened to our song;
“I’ ve been loving you too long, to stop now”
by Otis Redding.

My chest felt tight, my arms so empty,
My eyes swollen with tears.
I look at this house
I watch your brothers play.

My hands shaking, my heart breaking.
I look around this house and I feel,
“Something is missing.”
