:: little slip of paper ::

i have been quietly mourning the loss
of a precious little slip of paper,
for nearly two months.

in my exhaustive search for it,
i emptied our giant 95 gallon recycling bin
piece. by. piece.

today, as i was cleaning my office, i found it.

emily made this cherished little drawing
thirteen years ago.
she was four years old.
when she gave it to me,
she said, "i made it myself."

i carried this in my wallet for years.

i love it so much.

i love the little-orphan-annie eyes.

i love everything about it.

and now,
i love that i don't have to miss it anymore.
