I know that someday my hair will grow

And those light blonde strands you ran through your fingers

Will be gone

There will no longer be a strand on my head that you have touched

When I think of that day

The pain in my chest comes back

Tears sting the back of my eyes

And a sob catches in my throat

And I think of that letter

The small scrap of paper tucked deep on your bookshelf

The one I left in the pocket of my hoodie

That got destroyed in the wash

I think of that note

Breathe in the words

Feel your voice at my ear

I am enough

I am enough

And you were

You are



So I will let my hair grow

Watch it go as long as it can

When I feel the faint memory

of your fingers running through

I will think back to that note

and know

I am enough

I am enough
