Perfectly groomed grounds.
The smell of the air.
The many many trees that lined the walkways with their trunks painted white.
Sounds of the maintenance people and housekeeping driving by on their carts.
Stillness of the desert nights.
The way the air felt as I held you on the porch while you were sleeping.
Splashing in the pool.
The perfect words you spoke to me that I will cherish forever.
The starry nights.
Discovering your first two freckles on your perfect little face.
The cool tile of the bathroom floor.
Watching you hold daddy's hand as you walked across the street.
Feels like just yesterday you were here and we were enjoying our very last vacation with you.
I want those days back but all I have left are the sweet memories that I never, every want to forget.
I miss you.
