This Time Last Year

24 09 2013

I just woke up and proceeded to spend the day online with my girl.  

I remember wearing the orange top she gave and holding the chocolate cake I got for her a full 12 hours earlier.  Close to 8,000 miles apart but celebrating one special day together.  

Today was a little bit different.  I started the day earlier than usual so I could drop by the church, light a candle, and whisper a prayer for her.  Went to work afterwards and sobbed when a friend mentioned her name.  

Here’s hoping for a better year for her.  Here’s to new beginnings and new dreams.  Here’s to grasping the truth and knowing what we really want in life.  

I know what I want but I have come to accept that not everything we want, we get.
