    The hardest part of it all wasn't sleeping alone in the cold
    hard bed and having to wake-up everyday knowing he wasn’t going to be there.
    It wasn't watching all my friends getting married or seeing
    happy couples at the mall while knowing the one for me was gone for good.
    It wasn’t the countless apologies and deepest regrets people
    gave me only adding to the hurt. It wasn’t even the way everything reminded me of him.
    It was the way his scent started to fade from his things. I used
    to sleep with one of his shirts, that way when I first woke-up I could inhale his scent and for that brief second feel like everything was right in the world, not anymore.
    It was not being able to picture the one-of-a-kind expressions he would get when he was excited or the gestures he'd make when he was nervous.
    It was losing, bit by bit, little by little, day by day, who he was, what he was, why so many loved him.
    It was having to let him go, but mostly, it was the little
    things. Ironic isn't? I miss you.

    Dedicated to Timothy Monay

    I figured it was time to let ya'll in...

    Hi Serenti,

    I feel your pain in this piece. It tugs at my heart. I know how it feels to lose someone you love. Keep the memories of your husband in your heart. Remember his smile, his face, the sound of his voice, his laughter and soon the hurt will heal.

    I wish you all the best and much love to you!! If you ever feel the need to talk just drop me a note.

    ~Sierra~:heart:

    SERENITI-POET....WHAT YOU SAID WAS SO PROFOUND...I KNOW WHAT'S LIKE TO LOSE SOMEONE YOU LOVE...IT'S NEVER EASY AND WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT TIME HEALING ALL IS A LIE. BUT WHAT DOES HEAL IS KNOWING THAT WHO YOU LOVE IS IN A BETTER PLACE AND GOD CALLED HIM TO COME HOME BECAUSE HE HAD A GREATER PURPOSE. YOU KEEP YA HEAD UP GIRL AND JUST TRUST AND BELIEVE. YOU WILL GET THERE
