Lessons I Learned From You

I lost you two weeks ago.

A full two weeks of seeing your blue eyes everytime I think of you. Those eyes telling me it will be okay. Those eyes telling me you’ll soon be free.

Now you are free. No longer trapped by Alzheimer's.

My bathroom was once yours. The last night you were with us, I could smell the small bottle of perfume you had left in there. That was you reminding me that you’ll always be with me. That I can do anything. Nothing is impossible if I want to do it.
