On being alone

Howard and I met when I was in seventh grade, I think. We hung out in the same neighborhood back in the day before technology. Back when we spent our free time outside.
We started to date when I was a junior in high school and he had graduated. 
We were married in 1963 at ages 21 and 22.  We were so happy, so in love. 
We had a great marriage, one based on friendship, mutual respect, and love.
I'm lonely now, I never really thought about being alone but it was inevitable that I would be. 
It's funny that things that I miss. Someone riding along on errands. Reaching over in bed in the middle of the night and finding him there. Talking about our family. Hearing the words I Love You.  Going to the dump.  Planning a meal.  All of it....
Savor every moment with the one you love.
