We have reached point eX and I am caught in between glad we made it this far and sad you have to leave .

Just because you are a passing cloud ,don’t mistake me for the sun ,for I am neither screaming nor constant . I am the howling wind and the creaking sounds .

As we go our different paths ,I ask that you remember me . That someday you will tell your little girl about me . 

You will talk about the girl who had sadness in her eyes but laughter in her heart . The girl who never forgot your birthday , your favorite color or that you like a  teaspoon of sugar in your tea .

I hope that 10 years from now ,when memories have piled up and this past slowly fades , you will look out the window of a coffee shop at 11 a.m and imagine seeing me approach . I hope that someday you will hear a lady laugh and remember how annoying mine is . 

I hope you will find it hard to intertwine you left hand with anyone else’s ,because you know I love hands and that one was my favorite. 

Remember how I always sat on your laps when I was feeling sad, how I wouldn’t finish an apple if you hadn’t had a bite . That was me . Still is me , but I am moving on to a greater once upon a time .

I am moving on to a love that doesn’t judge me for eating too much fudge cake when am gloomy . To a love that gets me flowers and chocolates . A love that doesn’t mind rewatching Mr. Church with me for the hundredth Time .

Promise you will remember… no don’t do that . You have always been pathetic at making promises . Just remember me ,remember how I was never sure what my favorite color is,  how I loved cheese sandwiches . Remember my birthday , so that every year you would blow me kisses. I promise to leave my window open on those nights ,so that they’d have an easy time reaching me . 

Please !remember my favorite author , and the book I read to tears . 

Just remember me . Because no matter what forever I arrive to , you will always be etched in my memory

    And to think I was the only one who’s watched Mr. Church. That movie touched me in a way I can not explain.
