I watched her fold the fabric neatly and gather it gently under my peaceful face I remember her hands comfortable and tender tucking me away in bed telling me stories of Kings and Queens and a land far far away the way her mouth would smile as she reached the end of the fairytale I remember the softness of her voice as whispers of goodnight filled my sleepy head
and as I drift off to dream that’s how I’ll remember her in the quietness of the silence that’s where she will live for eternity
standing at the window she reads their love letters to the universe an infinite reflection of who she was staring back at her as the colors of the moon paint a luminous mural across the room the thought of him comes flooding back through her like it was just yesterday and the goodbye hurts just the same a promise once made now just a bitter-sweet memory
with every second that passes I wish I could hear the sound of your breath as you whisper your love to me and feel your voice laying gently upon the layers of my skin I wish you knew how deeply you are etched into my bones and that every poem that flows from my fingers will find a way to you in every single lifetime this universe holds
she always remembered the flowers on the old window sill how they would bloom so beautifully all summer and how the light would catch them just right and leave her with the memory of his touch as the warmth of the sun fades into the horizon
So, as I’m putting away all the Christmas decor today, I’m thinking of you. Thinking of all the memories we made and the love we shared. I wish I could have had you longer in life, but it wasn’t meant to be. I’m sorry you couldn’t stay.
This is the last thing you gave me before you left and it is still one of my favorite things, ever. I can’t believe it’s been 2 years since you left because to me it feels like it’s been a lifetime. I hate how things feel so different now without you; nothing will ever be the same.
Until we met again, I’ll visit you in my dreams and keep you alive in the memories I carry with me.
though your body is now free and your soul is at rest I miss you and I wish you were here
