Every time I hear about it, I'm reminded

Every time someone dies from it, I'm reminded

Every time I go to the doctor, I'm reminded

Every time I see my scars, I'm reminded

Every time I get a pain I can't explain, I'm reminded

Every time I pack my bag for the day, I'm reminded

Every time I visit the restroom, I'm reminded

Every time I prepare for bed, I'm reminded

Every time I wonder what survival odds really mean, I'm reminded

Every time I realize I can fall asleep now, I'm reminded

Every time I go to an event I couldn't before, I'm reminded

Every time I see beauty in the sky, I'm reminded

Every time I exercise my weakened body, I'm reminded

Every time I see how Kate still bears emotional scars, I'm reminded

Every time I'm alone in the house, I'm reminded

Every time I lay awake in the dark, I'm reminded

Every time I talk to God, I'm reminded

And I wonder if it will ever leave me
