I loved you more than any other chosen person in my life.
I still do.
I still miss so many pieces of you
Sometimes I hear or see something that only you would get.
And I hear your voice echoing in my mind.
I hear your laugh next to me.
It is almost like you are here again.
And all the terrible things you did never happened.
Other times I feel lonely because I know there are aspects of this life, of this world that only you and I could ever remember and find special.
There are so many generic things in this world.
Repeats and reproductions.
But you are not one of them, not even close.
You are more special and beautiful to me than words can ever describe.
Trust me, I have tried over and over again for close to a decade.
My only wish after all this time, is that you could somehow see what I could.
Oh how I tried for all these years to give you what will take a lifetime to discover.
I wanted it now and that was selfish of me.
I know that.
But still, I miss you.
I wish everyday that we could have been, should have been...but I am slowly letting that go because I have to for my own sanity.
Please know that when I sit alone at night, wrapped in a blanket or looking up at the stars on a warm summer night that I remember you.
Not the ugly.
Not the lies.
Not the addictions.
I remember the soul I fell in love with.
That person exists.
The goodness you fear and the struggles you tried to hide.
I remember your excitement and your eyes and your pain.
I remember that I loved you purely.
Everyday since the beginning of time and into our next lives, a piece of me will always be waiting for you.
I will love you always, even when I know I must do it from afar.
