do you remember the time we sat and giggled about the silliest thing. for hours. instantly, we knew we'd be friends. best ones, even. do you recall the hours spent talking on the phone. several times a day. the walks. the coffees. the shopping. the dinners. the wine. the supporting. the giving and taking and anyway, you don't do you?
because if you did, you wouldn't have been able to walk away from it without even saying a proper goodbye. without wrapping it in delicate lace and ribbon and setting it firmly on a shelf where it could be taken down and unwrapped when needed.
but you never claimed to hold on to things -- the one truth you stood by.
