An Elephant’s Promise

Standard

.

He claims to have the memory of an elephant, so I hope he remembers everything I’ve done for him.  The hugs and the kisses.  Every single I love you.  He better remember it was me who defended him and stuck by his side when the rest of his blood gave him a side eye.  The handwritten letters, the pictures, the late night and early morning texts better be engraved in his memory.  The tears I shed for his father’s farewell and the excitement I felt to see him once again.  I hope he never forgets any of this.  All that I’ve done out of my unconditional love for him.  If he keeps it all fresh in his mind, then I promise to always remember his hugs and his kisses.  Every single I love you and I miss you will stay on my mind.  I’ll remember he was the one who never abandoned me, taking me under his wing.  I’ll never forget the handwritten letters, the pictures, the late night and early morning texts.  He was the one who held me tight when I needed him most as tears couldn’t stop falling from my eyes.  I promise to remember his unconditional love for me as long as he doesn’t forget to do the same.
