Between The Lines

“You told me you loved me. Believed in me.
And that tells me everything will be alright.”

I see the empty space where you used to lay at night. Your scent still permeates from your pillow. Without you, all I have is a letter you wrote. You told me to follow my heart, stand my ground, and bear my name with pride. I didn’t know what those words meant at first, but on my own, I understand. You gave me strength, even though you’re no longer by my side. No matter how much I feel like my world is falling apart, I remember those words, and I recite them over and over again. Between those lines, you told me how much you loved me and believed in me, and that tells me that everything will be alright.

You told me you loved me.
That would always be enough.
