Updated on June 22, 2013

Remember the times

Staring into the distance

Of another day

Never once imagining

That we could drift off this far

      Just a few short lines say so much, and contain such pain and wistfulness.

      Have a wonderful weekend.

      This one is painful, to think about the things we lost that we couldn't imagine losing and the things we've yet to lose that we couldn't imagine being with out... ouch, my heart.
