Familiar Heartache

Everyday we miss you.

I've resigned myself to the fact that the ache that comes with missing you isn't ever going to go away.

So we greet each morning with our own broken reflection in the mirror and end each day with heavy hearts unable to ever truly rest because...heartache never sleeps.

We still have joy, it's just now, our happiest moments also contain the dull ache of our greatest pain.

We live without you.

Lives of anticipation.

Waiting until then...
