Today, I thought something beautiful and I did not cry.
I don’t need to wear a ring,
I don’t need to speak your name,
I don’t need to grieve,
I don’t need to cry,
I don’t need a tattoo with your name.
I don’t need to speak to you every night.
You are in my heart.
All you’ve done, who you were, your beautiful ways,
They’re all inside of me.
That’s something no one can take away.
When the negative thoughts crawl into my mind, the ones that scream at me that it was a shame you left us so early, I must endure through them.
All that could have happened, all I want to happen is a picture, a wonderful movie in my mind, something that is all my own. They are the thoughts that soothe me at night, they create a world I can go to at anytime.
What a gift it is to have you everywhere I go.
