Sometimes I wish I could move somewhere else just so you would stop haunting me. Everything about this house and the neighborhood around it has memories of you tied up in it. I feel as though I am trapped here… walled in by memories and surrounded by endless streets of thinking about you from every time I went walking to clear my mind. Every room in my home I have been in and either laughed because of you or collapsed in a heap and cried over you. It’s like I can never really move on because I’m still in the same place – quite literally – that I was when you were still in my life. I want so desperately to be able to control the memories of you and how much they affect me and I can’t help but think that the only way to do that is to leave this place behind and close the door on it forever. Because these constant reminders, as small as they may be… feel like a punishment; a reminder that I am trapped by a longing to be in a place and a time that no longer exists for me…..Ranata Suzuki
I want to be with you, and I want you to be with me.
I want to feel you by my side, and I want you to feel me.
I miss you endlessly, and I hope you are missing me.
I can’t stop the way that I feel, and I need you here to make it real.
I will always Love you, that neither time nor distance could ever change even though it comes with a lot of pain.
With distance, we can only be as friends, because we cannot share the closeness like others can.
Even though it’s difficult, one thing still holds true, and that is I will never stop Loving you. I am eternally yours “True Blue.”…..Carol Guajardo
Meeting you was not so much like getting to know you as it was like listening to a tune you don’t remember hearing before, yet you always seem to know what the next note will be. You were a familiar melody so addictive that before I realized it you were stuck in my head and I couldn’t get you out. Every moment of you played on constant repeat and would go round in my head for hours. Slowly you became the soundtrack to my life; every place I went, every person I spoke to, every dream I dreamed – there you were, constantly playing in the background. For whatever reason you resonated with me like no one else ever had and I listened to you intently… studied you and replayed you until I had memorized you perfectly. Then you pressed the stop button one day and I didn’t hear anything from you for a long time. The sudden silence was painful and lonely so I kept replaying you in my mind to keep me company… over and over until I thought I’d go insane. Eventually I tried to fade you out in the hopes that I’d forget you and I’ll admit that you are quieter now… I suppose it’s only natural that the more distance there is between us the quieter you become and the more time that goes by the more our conversations fade away like echoes. You were like my favorite song once… but lately I’m forgetting all the words and I don’t know how to feel about it… But the one thing I do know for certain is that somehow I had known you long before I knew you… That is why you were already so familiar to me that is how I know that even if you were to fade to a mere whisper… it would only take a single moment with you for everything to come flooding back to me once again. And as much as I miss the sound of your voice… I know that wall of silence is the only thing keeping the emotions at bay…..Ranata Suzuki
Be silly together
Write little Love notes and leave around the house
Small gifts; an occasional card that is not just for special occasions, one rose, their favorite dessert…
Hugs for no reason
Surprise kisses especially from behind on the neck
Make a special date night; in or out
Breakfast in bed
Do things your partner enjoys, not only the things you enjoy
Ask how their day was
Break the routine by doing things differently or unexpectedly
Show your appreciation.
Say thank you.
Be a good listener.
Be thoughtful, patient and reliable.
Say “I Love You” because those three little words still need to be heard!…..Carol Guajardo
