Today I miss him. Everyday I miss him, but today, right now... I miss him a lot. I miss the way he'd fall asleep on me and he'd be so peaceful. And even if it was just for ten minutes, it was pure serenity, and I'd feel like that peace and serenity was because of me. I'm glad I took sneaky photos to remember those moments. I miss being cuddled at night and feeling so safe and warm. And loved.
I miss smiling like this. And really feeling it.
I miss my beautiful best friend. I hate that she's so far away, on the other side of the world. I haven't seen her since 2005.
I miss my beautiful lifelong friend. I hate that she's far away too. I haven't seen her for months.
I miss the people I love most being close. I miss them all. So much.
