just another manic monday…

思念一个人

思念
It’s hard to describe what is missing. Your heart is aching and there’s this gnawing feeling in the pit of your stomach. The feeling of waiting for the person to come back.
It’s not about the time between the last time you met the person or the last time you spoke.
It’s catching yourself thinking that you wish the person was with you whatever you’re doing at the moment.
You wonder if they feel the same way.
Feeling this and feeling terrible because you don’t know if they feel the same.
Catch yourself missing the person when you’re in the midst of something.
Missing someone, only to have your heart skip a beat at the ringing of the phone and to be surprised by the person’s call or text message.
It’s agony to wait, but elation to receive with open arms what you waited for.
Somebody once said, “Good things come to those who wait.”

“Remember that everyone you meet is afraid of something, loves something, and has lost something”

“The heart that truly loves never forgets.”

I reflected on this quote for a moment. I realize that this quote puts into words the “whys” I have been asking.
Why do I remember the birthdays of certain people?
Why do I know certain telephone numbers off by heart?
Why do I remember the exact place and venue I meet a particular person?
Why do I remember the exact shirt the person wore on the particular day at a particular place?
Why do I remember how some people take their meals and drink?
Why do I associate the aroma with the person?

All answered in a single phrase: a heart that loves.
