She had rivers as hair
And stars in her eyes
Her smile was the sun coming from behind a cloud on a rainy day
And her laugh reminded me of the comfortable feeling when a fall storm was raging outside.
So powerful. And yet it made me feel safe.
Her tears were toxic for me
She was always present in some way
Like the air I breathe
She was there
She was the wind that moved the trees
The rain that crashed against my window
The smell of new books
Everything reminded me of her.
Even the smallest of things
It almost felt like she never left.
