December the 8th

I used to have an eerie feeling
Of a certain date

Never knowing
Why I felt that way

I had even said
There was something
About it
But I could never
Wrap my head around it.

Such a curious thing to wonder
Why a date in your head
Would be stuck on
For you to ponder

But I realized
I'd come to hate 
That date
Later in my life
When you met your fate
You were taken from me
On December
The 8th
Is it a coincidence
Or a prediction
Of fate?

Oh how...
How much I hate
The date
Of December... 
The 8th.

    I have a few dates that come to mind with the end result being of slightly similar fashion. I believe these feelings occur to us as a test. Never forgetting how we felt that day, but turning it into a reminder how far we've come since then. Maybe it's just me...great piece!

    I know exactly how that feels! I've always had a connection with that date for years, and it turned out to be the date that my son had passed and it always made me wonder of their could be more to it. Thank you for reading and the compliment!
