miss meza

I never understood how people missed someone they weren’t even with. It seemed silly to miss someone who wasn’t in your life the way you wanted them to be. What could you possibly miss?

I guess I get it now.

I miss you. I miss what we could have been. I miss knowing that you were in it with me. I miss picturing a home with you. I miss falling asleep to thoughts of us. I thought we were working towards something together and just like that you were gone.

Just like that I miss us.
