Clouds and Cathedrals

I have never seen the ocean, so I cannot tell you about it Frost. I have never flown in a plane, I do not know how it feels to be in the air. I have not been in a castle or walked the Great Wall of China. I have never experienced any of these miracles and yet I exist in the same world as they do. I am closer to these things physically than I can ever be to you again, but I do not know them the way that I know you. You are my heart. Someday maybe I'll see the ocean or walk in the rainforest, but all the beauty in this world won't compare to the day that I can see you again. I wish that I could make a place that would fill my heart up when I entered it the way that I know holding you alive and safe would. I wish that I could find you in trees and sculptures and clouds and cathedrals, but I cannot. I tried. Maybe in the short time since you left us you have done and seen all of the things I have not. Maybe somehow you could bring them to me and show me how to find beauty in them. How to find you.
Night, night Frost
Mama loves you.
