I miss the way we used to hold hands.
I miss the way you would rest your hand on my lap while I drove.
I miss the dinners you used to make for me.
I miss your laugh.
I miss your smile.
I miss your sense of humor.
I miss our stimulating conversations.
I miss the way your head would tilt slightly to the left when you tucked your long brown hair behind your right ear.
I miss your sky blue eyes.
I miss the way you used to bite your bottom lip while we made love.
I miss the smell of your perfume.
I miss the sound of your voice.
I miss reading the texts you would send me while I was at work.
I miss who I was when we were together.
I miss sitting on the front porch together just talking.
I miss watching you ice skate in your pink outfit and your blue one and your black one and...
I miss taking showers together.
I miss everything.
But those days are over and it's time to move on. I will always miss you Melissa, sometimes more than others. Do I still love you? No...but after almost twenty years together how could there not be a place in my heart for you? I hope you find someone that makes you feel the way you made me feel. I hope you find happiness Melissa.
