Where I live

This is something that has been repeatedly coming to me over the last couple of days…remember where I live. Perhaps it is because of something that I have to tell myself when I question it all. When I doubt. When I wonder. When I am hurt. So here is what I came up with…

When you don’t see my smile, remember where I live.
When we don’t spend time together like we used to, remember where I live.
When you question if it means anything, remember where I live.
When you are hurt because of words said, remember where I live.
When I’m not physically there, remember where I live.
When you want to run, remember where I live.
When you can’t say what you need to, remember where I live.
When you forget who you are to me, remember where I live.
When your laugh isn’t shared, remember where I live.
When distance keeps us apart, remember where I live.
When the “yesterdays” don’t seem to be our “todays”, remember where I live.
When you are not sure how to approach the day, remember where I live.
When the good, the bad, and the ugly come to you, remember where I live.
When you have something exciting to share, remember where I live.
When you can’t do all that you want to, remember where I live.
When all you have to do is ask, remember where I live.
When something is troubling you, remember where I live.
When I can’t take your call, remember where I live.
When you wonder what I am doing today, remember where I live.
When you need me, remember where I live.
When you miss me, remember where I live.

Yes, I want you to remember. I want you to remember so that you never forget it, but not just for you…for me, too. All of the “you’s” and “I’s” can be switched when we change places. And I tell myself every day that I need to remember where you live.
