People always say that it hurts at night
And the smell of dusty sunlight and earl gray tea makes you miss them so much
"It’s you. It’s been you for the past 486 days. Since the moment I met you. It’s you at 2 in the morning or 4 in the afternoon. It’s you when I’m sleeping and studying and eating and laughing. You are everywhere and you are everything."
"Things that matter are not easy. Feelings of happiness are easy. Happiness is not. Flirting is easy. Love is not. Saying you’re friends is easy. Being friends is not."
"I hope you get everything you deserve."
"Do not raise your children the way your parents raised you; they were born for a different time. "
"If you love her, remember that on the bad days."
"Someone where you can just do nothing with them, and just the fact you’re with them is the whole thing"
"We used to be pure souls. Little girls
not troubled with what was a sin and what wasn’t.
We had our dolls and our sadnesses
and we woke up in the morning looking forward
Our childish lives seemed so ordinary.
They were not ordinary.
I felt so bad for those little pure souls,
completely changed away from themselves."
"Maybe I’m just waiting for you to come back
And I’m praying for something that isn’t going to happen
But I’m tired and I need you
So that I won’t have to sleep alone anymore
And I’ll have someone to take walks with me at two in the morning because I can’t sleep
Maybe I need you here so I can send you a text telling you how my day was
And so that you can sit next to me during our family dinners
Because without you they are almost impossible to sit through
Maybe I need you to show me the difference between a bird and a cricket
And I know that I can’t watch scary movies
Unless your hand in holding mine
And when I go to wedding
You’re my favorite person to dance with
And when I’m praying at night
Your presence makes me believe in God more than any church did
Because the love we share is so much stronger then anything I ever imagined
And I love you
And I need you here
