(NOTE. This is one of a series of requested letters that was written in 2012. Perhaps it will help you communicate your love.)
I don’t like that you are so far away. This is a moment I want to share with you.
Of course, I always want us to be walking and talking together. When I turn a corner or look over my shoulder at the sound of footsteps, I’d love to see you. There are many moments in every day when I want you to share bits of my life.
After all, you are my life…or a huge part of it. Your quick mind and your sense of wonder spark my own curiosity. Your view of the world broadens mine.
Right now, I miss you especially. When it’s time for celebration, some of the shine and shimmer is gone without you. I’d love to capture each moment of excitement and see your eyes shine with the magic.
But we can’t experience it together. We are separated by circumstances that we can’t change for now. I must remember each precious bit so that we can relive it together.
And I’m not going to be sad. I’m going to think of your face, your smile, and your laugh. I’m going to nestle into the comfy feel of you next to me, your hand in my hand.
As I move through this time without you by my side, you are in my heart. We are breathing the same air as it swirls through the great distance between us. The stars are looking down on us from the same heaven.
I love you. I miss you. I am with you and you are with me.
