Luminous

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

Packing away memories

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
