Lawrence, my Love:
“I remember when your name was just another name that rolled without thought off my tongue.
Now, I can’t look at your name without an abundance of sentiment attached to each letter.
Your name, which I played with so carelessly, so easily, has somehow become sacred to my lips.
A name I won’t throw around lightheartedly or repeat without deep thought.
And if ever I speak of you, I use the English language to describe who you were to me. You are nameless, because those letters grouped together in that familiar form….. carries too much meaning for my capricious heart.”
― Jamie Weise
“Didn’t I say I’d always be your same stars? If you get to missing me, just look up.”
― Anne Rivers Siddons, Fault Lines
“The people we love get under our skin and crawl through our veins and fine their way into our heart. They choke up our blood flow and mess up our breathing and tangle themselves through our bodies like wire. Like razors, like fire.
We remember them even when we don’t remember them.
We try and forget, but it’s pointless.
Even amnesia. Even comas and brain damage and traumatic shock.
Whatever makes us not remember, we still remember.
Our minds flounder like fish but our bodies…
Our bodies remember.”
― Katrina Leno, The Half Life of Molly Pierce
“Usually time alters and affects everything, but when someone you love dies time cannot change that, no amount of time will ever change that, so time stops having any meaning.”
― Rosamund Lupton, Sister
The anniversary of your first year today at sunset.
All my love forever,
XO with tears Lisa
