What alarmed me most was the vacantness in her eyes as if being present was too much to bear. I thought I knew grief but this was different.
I've not really been one to ever let myself be overly emotional about relationships, so it wouldn't make sense for me to barrel full-force into oversized valentines day cards, stuffed bears carrying hearts and triumphantly pull out and a box of chocolates and say THIS IS IT. THIS IS THE ONE.
So I will keep you in my heart And in your heart keep mine The memories will never fade We’ll recall them from time to time
