Someday, we’ll meet again. Someday, you’ll get a chance to see me succeed at all the things you longly hoped I would. Days turned into weeks. Weeks into months. Months into years. But someday, you’ll see just how far I’ve come and how amazingly spontaneous Life has been.
Someday we’ll be able to laugh, gaze, and embrace one another like the old days. You’ll make your best meal (goat soup) and we’ll encamp around the tv and watch Jeopardy and Wheel Fortune, and maybe even a few WWE episodes. Haha! Someday, I’ll look at you and you’ll look at me and we’ll leave where we once left off. No sickness. No pain. No immobility. No cancer. No echoing silence or grief. No held back tears. Just days of pure bliss. Sharing our favorite vanilla ice cream, with rainbow sprinkles and strolling in the park on a beautiful mild sunny day.
Someday, you’ll be amazed to see my little one’s tiny feet running across the floor to meet you. Only to see that the little girl you once knew has now become a woman that is walking in your shoes. The shoes of simplistic happiness. A desire for Life’s level of greatness and all the things that come glittering in real gold that come along with what that means simplistically.
A knack for laughter and good times, as a remedy for those moments of struggle and utter madness. The determination to make success happen at all costs, while still remaining humane and morale. A heart of pure gold (that only God himself in heaven could create), that uplifts and aims to reach toward those in your presence, only allowing them to feel the good vibes that you feel, in any way possible.
I’m a woman after your own heart. And someday you’ll see just that! Someday, you’ll see that I’m making it. I’ve made it. And I’ll keep making it in spite of. One day, you’ll see the white picket fence (OR concierge to my home in NYC), dogs running, kids playing, and the one man (my better half, my Hubby) who stood by me every step of the way. Someday you’ll smile and I’ll smile and I’ll know instantaneously that I’ve made you proud. Someday, we’ll meet again and I’ll feel like the luckiest girl in the world ten times over. One day, I’ll be able to let you know……..that I Love you Grandpa and I still want to be just like you. ♥
