or, better alternative - just keep me in your life.
but just in case, remember my gold hair in the summer,
and the flecks of orange and yellow in my eyes.
remember my laugh,
and the softness of my skin.
remember my childish fear of aquariums,
and the way I so often smell like vanilla.
remember how I used to kiss you ears,
and always wanted to look at baby shoes, because they're just so darn cute.
remember jumping on the trampoline in the rain,
and the gentle breaths i'd let out when I fell asleep in your arms.
but most of all, if you absolutely have to let me go, remember that i love you with my whole heart, and no matter where life takes us, you will always be in my heart.
