What defines us is not the moments we live in,
but rather the moments we choose to hold closest to our hearts.
Every moment leading up to your departure has brought remembrance of occurrences that have led us to where we are.
Learning our truths on the weary sofa within our former haven;
Our unearthing of earth's tokens that we continue to build collections of;
The ore of iron wrapping around our fingers, symbolizing a promise.
Each moment we crafted together has built the structure that keeps us united.
They have built us a home, a place each of us can always depend on returning to.
As the train carries you towards new horizons, I squeeze these moments a little tighter to my heart.
And I know that our home will stand firm and full of love for as long we hold tight to these memories
and all that have yet to follow.
