I used to hate how much I missed you
until I realized that missing you meant I still felt.
True feeling is something I’d packed away for so long,
and – in a way – you opened me up to becoming who I was always designed to be.
I sometimes wonder if you knew how much you affected my life?
If you knew of the ways you helped me see beyond who I’d become and into who I was?
Thank you for showing me how to break out of my boxes and become this better version of myself.
I miss how well our lives crossed paths and how our schedules fit together,
but I also know when it’s time to accept a loss and move forward.
You’ll always have a special place inside my heart for how you saw who I was before I became all that I am.
I miss you and I realize I’m thankful for that because it means my heart is still beating.
