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.
