Early. and Loved

by Cole Miller

Dearest Memo.
155 days shouldn't be considered a lifetime.
But it was yours.
You left this world as you came into it.
and Loved.
Loved by all who knew you.
You couldn't have picked a better family to be born into.
So many hearts to always love you.
And so many minds to always remember you.
And though I never got to meet you,
or hold you in my arms,
I will forever hold you in my heart.
I'm sorry that your life was a struggle,
but thank you for being an inspiration to all of us.
For reminding us of how much we have to lose.
For reminding us to hug each other a little tighter
and say "i love you" more often.
I'm sorry I can't be there to say goodbye,
but wherever you may be now,
breathe easy and be at peace.
and know your Tia loves you.


Author's Note: in December I lost a nephew, and though we knew it was inevitable it is still heartbreaking.
