My heart won’t forget…

Happy Birthday my friend. We should be meeting for lunch today, or we would have met earlier this week to celebrate our close birthdays. We should be laughing together and sharing memories from the past. We should feel carefree, like we used to feel. The happiness we felt when together;  2 crazy women just enjoying life.

Last year we were hit with a massive curve ball that shattered both our lives in different ways. Last year brought a divide into our lives, so why am I writing this?  Why can’t I turn off my thoughts?  Why can’t my heart forget the date?

My heart can’t forget what we shared. The memories are there. Sometimes they will come with no warning. I will find something you gave me or hear something that reminds me of you. The memories are many.

Happy Birthday my friend. Things happen that we don’t understand. We may scream, we may cry, we may bend our heads in despair, but we can’t go back. We have to move on.

Life keeps going. Life is made up of moments; wonderful ones and painful ones. We have shared both kinds in our journey of friendship. Last year we came to a fork in the road and we are not sharing these moments together anymore. We may not be sharing life’s moments , BUT my heart  will not forget the date.

Happy Birthday my friend. My heart won’t forget the date. The truth breaks through. My heart won’t forget, because my heart still cares and it always will.

  1. I am sorry for your loss. Those dates live on in memory but the river of life does run on; you are right. My own date is Oct. 17th and that day is always a little bittersweet and I have found that as I move on it is my choice to focus on the bitter or the sweet. It sounds like you are doing the same. Happy Birthday!

    • Thanks for sharing your thoughts. You are right life does run on and its up to us in how we make it! Focusing on the sweet isn’t always easy but it is so much better! Writing is healing for me and I am smiling today thinking of the sweet moments I have to be thankful for in life! Thank you for the birthday wish as well! Have a great day!

    • I thought you could relate to it. ❤ Thank you for the kind words and for your thoughts!
      I will say I fought a little to write it at first, but as usual once I did write it I felt a lot better! Yes, it did bring some healing.

  3. It’s good that the heart won’t forget. Cherish all those wacky moments and take comfort in knowing that the separation is not the fault of either of you. Though things will never be exactly the same as they were, in time there will most likely be a grand reunion. Until then, continue to relish the memories.
