It’s been a full year, now. This photo was the last one ever taken of us. It was snapped by Dad about 2-3 weeks before…you know. I had no idea what was coming. I was so set on the idea of you coming home, overcoming the monstrous demon within you. You were the strongest woman I ever knew. My blissful ignorance had gotten the best of me. You died soon after, in my arms on the chilling 15th night of December ’13. It feels just yesterday I lost my everything, yet at the same time it feels as if eons have passed since I last heard your voice. The things I would do to have you back… For now, I’m stuck writing you letters that you’ll never read. Maybe we will reunite again someday, Mama, and I truly hope that day is soon. I cannot wait much longer. This earth is not a peaceful place. I miss you beyond belief and you will always be my everything.
Much love forever and always,
