A letter from Lloyd to Lisa

Dearest Lisa.
The weather was nice hear today. I couldn't believe the amount of sparrows overhead on our walk to the beach. It's magnificent what the world has to offer to onlookers such as us. Two kids now, can you believe it?
Funny how time seems to just slip out from underneath us.
I have had a weight.
And yes...I KNOW that this might sound so simple, even silly.
But, where are you?
I feel your emptiness,
I feel the void between where we were, and where we are.
I want to fill it, to make it go.
To remove ourselves from its terrible presence.
Alas, my love, i cannot.
here we lie.
I ask forgiveness if it was i who brought down such a drought.
Such a terrible disaster.
I have never wanted anything more than i want this.
you, my love, are eternal.
There is a darkness.
You are a light.

Dear Lloyd,

I’m here (for now).

Your words touch me so softly like the tip of a sparrow’s wing touching the air. I miss your writing. I save it all (did you know that?).

You have always had me in your heart, even during this terrible drought. But you haven’t listened to your heart since last summer. You remember how to love me, but you forgot why you do.

I forgive you. Because you will always be my sweet.

I wish you would fix your guitar. And play for me again. And I’ll hum along when you close your eyes at the moment that I always imagined you imagining that place where I kissed you the first time. So nervous. So happy. So forever.

I took a picture today of a flower from so far away that I could barely see it. But I knew it was there. I feel like that flower. You know that I’m there, but sometimes you don’t see me.
