the beauty of missing you

One of the ways you know someone belongs in your life is when you miss them.
It feels like they belong in your days, hours, and moments. Coffee tastes sweeter, you hold tighter to the memories, and you laugh more, and you feel deeper because they are around.

When they aren't you want to remember the details because you have to re-live them when they are. You memorize the feelings, the things you see, and the things you do. Because you want to share as though they were there the whole time.

The beauty of missing someone is that you have let someone into your heart and life enough to feel. To feel loss and love, to feel close and far. I love missing you because it helps me remember where I belong. That's with you.
