It’s been over 6 months but my heart still aches everyday. Your birthday is coming up. I think about all of the birthdays we celebrated together. Posts, pictures, memories…
I am wondering if this ache will ever fade. I wonder if I’ll always be fighting back the tears. If I’ll always feel this way. Like I’ve lost a piece of myself.
I flip through the pictures. I keep them in my phone. In a way, I don’t want the pain to fade because I never want to forget just how important you are to me, and the world.
For your birthday, I will make a promise. You will never be forgotten. Your pictures will remain within reach and on my mirror to remind me how important you will remain. Just because I can’t call you, I still hear your voice. Sometimes, I hear music. I know it’s you. I feel it. Thank you for being here for me even though I can’t feel your warm hugs, I still feel the love. I love you.
