I miss him

I miss the sound of his voice
And the touch of his hand

I miss his laugh and how
His eyes lit up when he smiled

I miss the way he wrapped his
Arms around me and made the world go away

I miss the way he would get so exasperated with me
But then just sigh and smile . he could never be mad at me.

I miss the way he supported me
Even when he didn’t agree with what I was doing

I miss the way he let me hog the bed and
I even miss him snoring next to me.

I miss our shared dreams and the promise
Of growing old together.

I miss our silly disagreements and his crazy
Sense of humor.

I miss his love of life and his courage in the
Face of adversity.

I miss the way that he never met a stranger
And everyone loved him so

I miss how his strong sense of character and
How he made me a better person.

I miss his selflessness and his giving spirit.

I miss his ability to make the best of any situation.

I miss the way that he loved his family and put us
First, even before himself.

I miss the way that he loved me like I was the center of his world.
I miss him…….

All of this is very familiar to me. I just did not write it down as beautifully as you have done. Thank you for sharing. Ellen
