"I'll be around, when she's gone..."

From the Sinatra tune, no less...

...now and then, drop a line, to say that you're feeling fine...
and when, things go wrong, perhaps you'll see
you're meant for me,
so i'll be around,
when [s]he's gone...

*sigh*... deep breath.

Isn't it a damn shame how you remember so much about people after they're no longer in your life? Despite how they made their exit (death, ex-communication, break-up, etc.) as soon as they are gone, it's as if your mind brings to your attention all these memories that it had on reserve.

Little things, they usually are, things that got lost in the day to day of life; the minutiae that you tend to cling to when you start to realize the possibility that you might not ever experience those things in real time again.

Like the way someone's face practically lit up when they told a story, or when they laughed, or the way their eyes sparkled when they were amused... have you ever witnessed the sparkle in someone's eyes? It's extraordinary, and once you see it, you'll be able to tell the difference between eyes with and without sparkle.

Have you taken the time to notice the timbre of your love's voice? Once you stop hearing it, it tends to replay in your head... the way they spoke your name, the way they sounded when sleepy, or when aggravated...

What about the way they walked? The way their toes bounced slightly off the ground as though they were walking on clouds... or the way they kissed you, or held you...

You tend to not think of these things until confronted with something different, something that might be pleasing to the senses, but just isn't that thing that you knew. Must I say it--don't it always seem to go, that you don't know what you got 'til it's gone...

I think the same thing. I mostly just blog because for the first time in 19 years I have nobody else TO talk to. I'm slowly adjusting to it. Your blogs give me a reason to keep doing what I'm doing, sincerely. You're such a strong amazing, educated, and talented woman from what you write. :)
