Her Absence​

I once read “when you truly miss someone, their absence speaks greater that the presence of others.”

Many days ago I was driving home, and I began to think about her approaching birthday. I miss her today as much as I did at first when she went home. So very much.

I can still see her sitting across the table from me as we drank coffee together. I can hear her laugh and see her smile. Truthfully I’ve never seen anyone smile as big as her. A smile that made every worry disappear.

This particular day the tears flowed more so than they ever had before. Even voicing how much I miss her cannot express the depth of her absence in my life. As I moved my hand to wipe the tears from my cheek, I realized ………. she still can make me smile.

Happy birthday my sweet friend.
You are greatly missed.
Until we meet again.
