I miss you…

I put this photo on my FB profile every time I am feeling vulnerable or scared.

I did not look my best, and until now I fail to remember what the heck I was holding in my hand…

But seeing this picture makes me feel rather safe… the smile on her face, the grin on the side of my mouth, and mostly her arm around me, and me leaning against her like I barely ever do… makes it easier to summon her spirit and remember that warmth I so miss…

It’s been eight years today, and if there was a wish we could make on days like these, mine would be that I would relive the moment when that photo was captured and hold on to her tighter.
