earlier today i remembered that one time when told me you thought the sky is so big here. at the time i laughed and said “really? it doesn’t seem all that big to me. not like, say, montana.” but you said it’s what you thought, and i went with it, not really agreeing.
but today? today i agree.
today the sky struck me. the clouds. the temperature. the sun. everything. and it made me stop and pay attention.
we were in a park with friends and i noticed the way the clouds looked. i noticed the way the sky was a nice blue and in that moment, as i gazed in that one direction, everything seemed quiet and still. in that one moment i realized you were right. the sky is big here.
and oh, how i wished i could lean over and put my head on your shoulder and admit to you that you were right.
today the sky was big. and it was a wonderful day.
the only thing missing was you.
