Poetry by Juliette Sebock


I never got to know you,

but it seems my what-ifs

hold the most grief.

I see your photo and imagine

you must have been sweet

to have brought so much joy to so many,

to have loved the greatest woman one could know

I only knew of you—

yet I feel like I'll miss you so.
