just an hour or two / is better than none of you / I miss you

The saddest thing is realizing that you've forgotten the sound of someone's voice.
The hardest thing, then, is when you hear a voice that somehow reminds you of that lost voice, making you miss it all the more. And knowing that it's out of reach forever.

[the title quotation is from Kiss Me When I'm Down by Gary Allan]


  1. About five years after Aaron died, I worked at a temp job where there was an Aaron. Whose face looked just like my Aarons and voice was similar too. He was a lot younger than me. I probably stared at him too much.

    1. I'm never going to hear a Gary Allan song again without flinching. I don't know what it is about it, but that's Brian's voice. It seems an easy thing to avoid, but now that I know it's there, I can't stop listening.
