You were there…

loveYou were there…

That smile. The way you look at me, wide eyed, curios. Do you know me? Have we met before? Oh yes…

You were there… for the back to back spin and yoga class. When you helped me pick out the play list; A collaboration of 80’s and 90’s for spin and a mellow laidback playlist for yoga. You hit me to let me know we were going a little too hard in spin and fell asleep in yoga letting me know you had reached our final savasana.… you were there…

                You were there for that time I was overwhelmed (one of many). When the dishes piled up, the laundry was overflown and I had over committed to friends and family. You where there, cuddled up with me, telling me it was going to be ok when I didn’t believe that it would be…. You were there…

                You were there when I missed them… when all I wanted was for dad to pop out of nowhere and tell me “keep up the good work”. You were there when I just wanted mom to grab my hand from the passenger seat and bop it to the beat of the music like we were having a dance party in the car… you were there…

                You were there when I didn’t think I could… when I looked in the mirror and thought I was failing. You gently tapped me letting me know we were succeeding. When I looked in the mirror and looked like I was done.  You looked back and said I had just begun… you where there…

                You were there for the hugs, the uncertainties and when I needed to hear “I love you”. The times where we wanted nothing to do with one another and the endless moments where “I don’t know where I would be without you”… you were there…

                You were there when all I wanted was her. When I felt myself failing and didn’t think I could succeed. When I wanted her voice, her touch, her smell… You were there…

                You were there… with your soft yet loud cry. With those big blue eyes. With your love, your compassion, your smile; you were finally here. My sweet, sweet Leslie Sue… you are here.

love 2
