Once Full

Once Full

this bottle, once full,
serves as a reminder
of how empty my life is without you

your words, you used
to knead my wounded soul,
no longer echo in this world

your touch, you used
to melt away my fears,
is no longer felt in this world

your love, you gave
to cleanse my picture of self,
is no longer given in this world

this bottle, now filled with my words,
serves as a reminder
that my life can be full once more
