In The Cupboard

I’ve got a bottle of wine in the cupboard

It was a bottle you had bought

I think you were saving it

For something special

I’ve kept it all this time

In the back of my cupboard

Out of sight

Out of reach

I’ve got a bottle of wine in the cupboard

My plan was to share it on our birthday

But I’ve kept it for so long

It’s probably undrinkable

But it was the thought that

It would feel like you were here

As though we were sharing a drink with you

Our 21st

A day of celebration

There‘s a bottle of wine in the cupboard

Your wine

Your twins

21 at last

You would have been over the moon

Nearly 3 years that bottle has stayed

I don’t want to let it go

I’ve built up this moment so much

I’ve got your bottle of wine in the cupboard

If I open it

It will be gone forever

Why have I put so much meaning into this wine?

I can’t

But maybe I should

Let it go

And toast, to you

I’m just waiting for the moment everything falls into place. A moment we may never reach A dream of happiness A dream of longing... belonging. A bond so mature and so naive You have rooted so deep But

I’ve been thinking a lot about life recently How fleeting and unfair it can be at times How suddenly you left Without a hug or a kiss goodbye Maybe you were too good for this world So much experience
