Napowrimo 6

Somehow I stopped seeing it
As the park where we went 
The day we spent together
When it seemed you needed company

Or the park where I sat
As a sandbox philosopher
Immortalized in my yearbook 
I never got the photo back

Or the park where I would run
To let off steam not to be a kid again
But to swing on the swing set
As an arrested thirty something

Today I sat on the see saw 
And saw all of that and breathed
Beside a new you and a new me
Where you can live even though you’re gone

And I can live with someone who loves me
