|Let the memory of Elizabeth be with us forever|
I miss you dearly. You are and always will have the greatest positive impact on my life. People have tried to sooth me with the best intentions but nothing will never compare to your loving, compassionate warming embrace. I think of the days i came home from school, such long periods of time, and the moment i stepped through the door there you stood with a reaction that surprised every sense in my body. Your smile brightening my eyes, triggering every moment in my life from past to present and continuing on towards the future. Your touch, the very instance you threw your arms around i could feel safety, joy, love and so much more just within seconds of a hug or a kiss. Your smell, after work, of mail mixed with perfume and conditioner. Your clothes purposefully filled of sweet laundry detergent, so sweet you can taste the citrus or so strong yet delicate like the smell of a fresh picked flower. One of the last senses i will be describing has the most refreshing a purest memories words can not describe. Hearing, my most valuable asset you gave to me, of foot steps, conversations attended or not attended for my ears, emotions, laughter, concern, and etc. Why is it so valuable to me? Hearing your voice will never leave me. It allows me to always have you around wether or not you are there. Speaking to me when i need your wisdom and strength. Allowing me to never give up, making me fight. Its a guide, a map, giving me a direction/path to follow through thick and thin for better or for worse. As memories may fade, the sound of your beautiful voice will remain because no one will be born into this world with a voice like yours. Such a unique gift only recognizable by those that cherish your entity. My darling mommy, there is one last sense that has been difficult to describe but as i write it here there shall be no judgement. Taste. As an infant im sure i remembered it rather well. The most important bonding method from mother to daughter. I imagine a taste of love, closeness, selflessness, admiration of beauty of such connection. With these five senses of sight, touch, smell, hearing and taste i achieve an embodiment of you as well as the girls( Rayeann and Kayla). No one can take or replace such a precious gift. Therefor i don't feel a chunk missing from my heart instead i feel a growth. A growth of a miracle.
I love you mother/ mommy. You will be missed dearly but not for long because eventually i will be joining you. Until then i say "see you soon and rest in peace".
