Just a Year Ago
Thursday, March 04, 2021
It was just a year ago when I last held your hand.
We laughed and joked, not knowing that it would be our last time to be close. They locked the doors to keep us and COVID out. Still, COVID got in, and I watched from the outside as you slowly died alone.
You’re gone now.
But your loving spirit is still here.
I see your kindness in my actions and I hear your laugh in mine.
I miss you.
Every day I think of you and wish that we had been given more time together.
I miss being with you and holding your hand.
I miss your kiss on my cheek. I miss your love.
I’m still listening to your voice.
Sometimes I hear it when I speak. You speak through me and to me every day.
I know that you’re watching, listening, and speaking. I just need to be still and hear.
