Exactly one year ago, I lost a best friend. Exactly one year ago, I lost a piece of me that can never be replaced. I feel like I’m falling into nothingness.
But then I think of Danielle.
I remember a life lead with no enemies, no resentments, and no regrets.
I’m inspired again.
And so I peel myself off my bedroom floor.
Because the only thing keeping me from being swallowed whole by sadness is that she would hate me if I let it.
So for now, I’m just going to miss her.
I miss you Danielle. I love you.
And I carry your heart. Always.
