When your best friend is gone it leaves holes in your life. Some greater than others. While there's much I'm missing today the simple things are what ache the most.
I miss holding your hand as we walk down the street. I miss sharing popcorn and candy while we watch a movie at the theater. I miss cuddling on the couch before bed. I miss Saturday morning breakfast, when we'd go to your favorite spot for biscuits and gravy. I miss hearing your voice in the morning and helping you get ready for work. I miss listening to you about your day and rubbing your back and feet while you unwind. I miss opening the door with take out for dinner and seeing your smiling face. I miss your laugh and the way you'd make me laugh. I miss looking at your face and your deep blue eyes. I miss you curling your head under my chin.
I miss you and I wish you weren't gone. But I've lost you and heaven and earth seems not to care. I miss you and I'm not ashamed to say I love you even though you don't love me anymore. My love was always forever, always genuine, always there and never anything less than my whole heart and soul.
I miss you even when I'm hurt by your absence. I miss you and my heart feels lost without you. I miss you and time feels slow without you. Hours feel like days and minutes like hours. I miss you more than I ever could imagined. I'm not over you and I still love you.
This is my heart on my sleeve and I'm sharing it for no other purpose than to express my inner truth.
