and I still look for you when I get home
I still find myself thinking, “I don’t need to eat all this chicken, I should save some for Max.” I called to you to day to come get cheese. I tell myself that if I didn’t love you so much, it wouldn’t hurt this much – and while that’s true, it doesn’t help.
So many cards, so many messages, so many people loved you too. But you were mine. They loved you, and you loved them, but you came home with me, and I was yours.
My beautiful boy. Heart to heart.
