What do I miss most about you?
The early morning walks along the shore...
Remember how we used to wade in the water?
It washed over our ankles like the brush of a cat's body.
Somehow those strolls made the world feel safe,
or at least we liked to fool ourselves into thinking so.
They seemed to pass by at a slow-motion pace,
just like the scenes in the movies we used to see.
Perhaps it's the Wednesdays together that I miss.
You spent your day off with me when you could have been anywhere else.
But how could I ever forget your wild ways?
I never could tame you,
but then again,
why would I want to?
Maybe your wanderlust spirit is what makes me smile the hardest.
There was not one place in the world that you didn't long to explore.
I laugh when I remember how I used to wriggle in your arms during a scary movie.
I don't watch horror movies anymore.
I miss waiting patiently by the phone for you to call,
because you always did.
I miss wrestling with the choices that we had at our feet.
The possibilities were endless.
I recall every wish that we had for the future,
every dream and aspiration that we held so dear--
before you left me for another.
the only W word that my mind can't erase is,
