I remember my mama’s voice over the phone. It was about the time when I stopped returning their calls because I was tired of hearing the same lecture about grades and jobs. Boyfriends can come and go, she said, but family is forever. I was so blinded by love that I struggled not to roll my eyes. Behind the polite mhm yes ma’am sure I know, I was holding back the misguided belief that we were beyond that. At that moment I trusted him so deeply and couldn’t magine a time in my life when he wouldn’t be right there beside me. He was my family and my forever. So I did a stupid thing and failed to heed my mother’s warning to be careful with my heart.
be with someone who will stop what they are doing to kiss you. Life gets crazy and busy and things happen and in the middle of it, i think its important to be with someone who can calm you and remember to make you feel loved.
