Its been 3 years since I've felt your hug.
3 years since I've heard your voice.
3 years since I've got to see you.
3 years since I've got to see your smile or hear your laugh.
3 years of missing you.
The worst 3 years of my life.
I've been staring at your pictures trying to repress the tears building up in my eyes.
I've been staring at your pictures wondering why you had to be taken from me.
I've been staring,
I've been staring, I have been staring at your pictures to memorize every little detail of you.
The way your eyes lit up when watching something you loved.
I remember the way you jumped from your seat when I got hurt on that soccer field.
I remember you carrying me and making me laugh through my tears.
I remember, I remember and it still hurts.
When you left you took a piece of me with you, and now I have this whole in my chest that can never be filled.
I have dreams with you in them where I get to bury myself in your grasp and don't feel this constant emptiness.
I have dreams, I have dreams, I have dreams where I get to see you one last time and I wake up in tears because you aren't here with me.
You aren't here, you aren't here, you are not here and knowing that kills me. It has been tearing me apart from the inside out and I'm not sure how much of me is going to be left.
