Mmm... this really personal, so I would really appreciate soft critisism.

The first greeting

PROMPT: Love in Words

1
Dear Grandma,

Hi.

I thought a greeting would be the right way to begin this letter, as I never had the chance to say hi to you or you to me. As a matter of fact; when I arrived, you were already gone. 

I just wanted to say I miss you, which is absolutely crazy. Can you miss someone you’ve never  met? 

The thing is, I feel the opposite way, as if you had always been here; a presence that even today I can sense, it’s almost tangible. 

Sometimes, I fear I am feeling nostalgic for a dream, an image of you my mind and heart have take the liberties to make up, as there are only stories told by others to fill the gaps of who you were. 

Some nights, I stay up staring at the roof and pretend you’re still alive, and my head creates memories of us two, cooking, watching tv or simply talking...They always say you were a great listener. 

I love you grandma.
