Seeing Ghosts

Heartstring Eulogies

“I see ghosts of you wherever I go.
Those reminders are all I have left of you.”

I see ghosts of you wherever I go. In the corners of my eyes, I see you passing by, and my breath catches in my throat. Sometimes I can smell you, that woodsy scent that always made me feel at peace. Or I’ll catch you whispering to me in the space between sleep and wakefulness. Those are all I have left of you. Those are the reminders that you existed. That you had my heart before I ever met you. And beyond my last breath, I will never stop loving you. So, my darling, know that I’m still here. Your memory lives on. But most of all, I want you to know that you saved me.

You saved me
every day.
And you loved me
anyway.
