If I said I remember our first date? Swing dancing, or as I like to call it making a fool of myself. I don’t know if you caught it, but when asked if we were dating I said “not at the moment” because I hoped that soon we would be. You had taken my breath away that night. No fancy clothes, just sweats, a white and pink t-shirt, your hair pulled back and a smile that instantly made me smile. No makeup needed, just the definition of amazing summed up.
If I told you I remember our game of questions? What’s your favorite color? Green. Where is the one place you most want to see? Africa. What’s your favorite animal? It’s hard to have a favorite when you love them all.
If I said I miss falling asleep on the couch with you sleeping in my arms as “Up” played on the television. And seeing with you the whole valley from atop Chickie’s Rock.
What about if I told you I still can’t sleep… after all this time holding a body pillow just can’t compare. Rubbing your back, and cuddling close, whispering things in your ear. These things I can’t have yet I want more than ever.
If I told you it’s all still here, the memories, the future, the present, everything’s near. I still can’t look at other girls without comparing them to you… It’s hard to beat perfection. Come back to me.
Would it make a difference? Probably not, but I can hope. I miss you, SO MUCH
