I had somebody in this life who just had to look at me for me to see a universe of love.

His smile swirled around me and filled me with joy.

He soaked in my pain with the deepest empathy a human is capable of.

He brought out the best in me, a side of me that I didn't know existed before him. 

We held each other up, creating such a strong foundation that it felt like it would never crumble.

Part of our strength was that we were real.

He had flaws, I loved him anyway.

He annoyed me sometimes, I loved him anyway.

We argued sometimes but we never went to bed angry.

We were important to each other because we allowed each other to be authentic even when it was ugly.

He was a storyteller and full of magic.

He created rituals that made our house and our little tiny family feel so cozy.

He called me duchess, doll, gorgeous and played with my name in the best ways.

He made characters for our dog and cats.

He created worlds out of words and they were all for me.

He made the moon shine for me...

I miss you, S. 

This world is so dull without you.

This is so beautifully written, NoMoreComplete!  What a beautiful way to remember S by.  This is a lot of the way I felt about my PJ.  PJ could make me feel so loved calling me cute, funny names.  Yes, the world is dull, empty without them.  When I stare at the moon or sun shining...I think my hubby is making it shine from heaven to remind me of his  love we shared.  ((((Hugs))) to you for sharing this.  Thank you!
