Twenty-Two Years

I cannot believe it has been twenty-two years since I last saw you.

Twenty-two years since we last spoke.

Twenty-two years since you left this world.

Twenty-two years without you.

 

I was ten years old.

I am now thirty-two years old.

Twenty-two years.

And it hasn’t gotten any easier.

 

And I wonder……

Are you proud of me?

Do you know how much I miss you?

Do you know how desperately I wish you knew my children?

Do you know that you were my best friend?

 

IN MEMORY OF VIVIEN M CHAPMAN NOVEMBER 3, 1912 TO JANUARY 31, 1990.
