There are times I wish I could put you in my pocket. I could take you out and put you on my shoulder for encouragement. You would tell me that everything will be alright and that I am stronger than I know. You would help me stay focused on my goals and give me the strength and energy I require to keep going no matter how much I think I cannot. You know me better than that. Though we are miles apart, I know you always reside in my heart. Though I may not see you for days, weeks, or months at a time, I can call on you in my mind and in my heart to be right there. You are beside me to guide me all the days of my life. For when you truly love someone, they never truly leave your side.
