Tears stain a perfect memory

Tears stain a perfect memory, they steal smiles born of forgotten yesterday’s. Ones of unconditional love lost amongst those perfect thoughts. Wrapped around you like much needed hugs, Holding them tightly for fear they’ll simply fade into fog. The love you carry deep within your heart only hurts just before the tears start. Loss isn’t letting go or forgotting but remembering where you’ve been, what you’ve seen, It’s the memories we’ve learnt to walk between. Many times I’ll think about you, I truly wish you were still with us, you’ve left a huge amount of treasured memories wrapped around my heartstrings. Today I look towards the heavens and wish you “Happy Birthday Dad”. Miss you more than I ever realised. May I Stare across the starry night and find the brightest star of all, if only for a second, maybe three I’ll find you staring back at me…

“Forever in our thoughts and hearts”

Published by Lee David Wright

Hi there, I'm Lee, I live in the UK in a small town called Blackburn. If I'm not working in the steel industry or training in karate, I'm out walking and taking pictures. I love taking photos and making them beautiful. I have struggled with depression and anxiety for a very long time. My writing run alongside my issues,  personal pitfalls, and experiences through life. Some experiences sad, some dark, but always honest. I treat my writing as my personal therapist., letting my thoughts out in words. This releases my inner demons and settles my personal head space.
