I thought I saw you today

When the elevator door opened, my heart dropped!

You looked beautiful in blue, and I always thought you did. Your skin glows and has a subtle tint of red when the sunlight hits you, making your skin look warm and comforting to my soul. 

You had that joyful look in your eyes, like you had just told a joke and made everyone around you laugh. You have a way with people and make them want to be good when they’re with you. You bring out the best form of everyone, and I strive to mimic that. 

As I began to step out of the elevator, my heart started to pound so hard that I lost my balance and stumbled, but my eyes never left my face. I feared I would lose you again if I took my eyes off of you. 

I couldn’t take that chance. I didn’t want to risk that.

How is it possible to want to see someone so badly that your mind plays tricks on you? 

My heart is aching all over again, and the pain is unbearable. Knowing that I’m looking into the eyes of a stranger that vaguely resembles you cuts deep in my soul. 

I’m grieving all over again. 

You could have chosen any blog to read, but you chose mine, and I’m honored!

  1. It’s so weird when our minds play tricks on us. My mom has been gone for 3 and a half years, but there have been multiple instances during that time that I’ve seen someone of similar height, build, etc, and done a double-take because I thought I saw her. And then I realize what’s happened and, like you said, the grief slaps me like a scorned lover.

  2. You made me to fall in love in a split second. You just reminded me that love is indeed a beautiful connection that some of us take for granted. Thank you for making me fall in love again. 😥❤
