You were once soft,
Absorbing the world with eyes-wide open with wonder,
What made your heart flutter
The things that turned your lips
Upward into a smile.
I miss you
I really, really do.
I miss seeing the pages of a book
In between your beautiful, delicate hands
I miss your deep thoughts
Your written word
I know that I wouldn’t ever see you again
And that is painful.
And yet here I am
