3 Years later

It has been three years. Three years since you past. I have been counting the years before that. Since before I last saw you, Since the last time I hugged you.
I remember you would tie my shoes. I remember you would get me snacks. You would let me play. I always had fun around you. I never saw what the others did. I just saw my mommy. You were not the best, But I did not know this. I just knew I love you. You knew me before I had a name.

Rest in Peace Patricia Butterfield
