I often find myself alone and pondering where you are. Many of you I see several times a week and some—just fleeting glimpses on rare occasions. Even as each moment passes, I miss you more and more.
At first you were just shadows, passed in desperation. Yet now, parts of me-each face imprinted in my memory-each voice echoing in my heart.
Its cold outside now, and as I sit here in my warm solace an utter sense of panic and shame befalls me. I fear for you– your shivering now and how I wish I could do more to keep you warm and help you on your path. My heart breaks at the thought of the cold concrete pressed against your skin.
I started in this world not knowing you-yet now, I can never forget you. My family, you have grown over the years. I feel blessed to have this one moment in time to just let you know how much I love you. Thank you for being a part of me–
