While we were still dating, I was always the type to take pictures of random moments, because my thought is no two moments are ever the same. You can gather the same people and bring them in a room and gather those same people a week later and things have changed. Take this same group over a year or two and things are definitely different. People change. The relationships between the people change. Some grow stronger and others have faded with time.
She had requested me to send her pictures of her and her grandparents. I had taken them early on in our relationship and had to dig through some old archives to find the pictures. Me being the nostalgic type found her pictures and sent them to her and then started to go through all my photos of 2011 and 2012. I picked out all my favorites of friends and other moments I am fond of so I can upload to FB and maybe print out, when I came across this picture.
I smiled. A real one. We are still very far from being normal friends, but there is something about love you can never kill and thankfully so. We won't have our late night chats anymore, our good morning kisses, and our long drives where I hold her hand the whole way. Love does not really die. I believe love just takes on different forms. It continues to remain.
I still am able to smile when I see your face.
Keep hoping the sun shines favorably on you.
I do believe whatever you conspire towards,
The entire universe will help you to achieve.
You do not have my presence to help you in your endeavors,
But I send you my spirit who wishes the best for you everyday.
Good luck old friend. Keep driving forward and keep smiling.
You are on your way as am I ... as am I.
