There are things I miss:
Your smile and your laugh.
Falling into your arms for a reassuring embrace when things aren’t going that well.
Knowing that there’s always someone on my side, even if I’m wrong.
Feeling beautiful and loved just because you say so.
Unplanned date nights, just because.
Snuggling on the sofa watching television with you thee to tell me what I missed when I fall asleep.
Late night talks and dreaming and planning and wondering what tomorrow will bring.
I have become accustomed to missing all of theses things on most days. But not today.
Today my heart hurts and my tears flow freely. And the ache feels fresh and new.
I will count my blessings. I will look to tomorrow and dream of what is to come.
But today, there are things that I miss.
