“It wasn’t the earth keeping
me grounded. It was you.
I just wish I realized it sooner.”
It felt like floating in space, living without you. I never realized I needed gravity until you showed up in my life and made me feel like I belonged with my feet planted and you there by my side. It wasn’t the earth keeping me grounded. It was you all along. I just wish I realized it sooner. And for that, I will always be sorry.
