“To look into his eyes first thing as you awaken. To be with your loved one at the dining table and not be able to eat a morsel. To be miles away from my man, and then suddenly smell his body, and be overwhelmed by memories. To speak for hours on the phone, when he’s away, long distance. To shop for a gift for my special one – and the thrill of planning how to wrap it, write a card and how to present it.”
