Love, Loss and Adulthood

I wonder how long it will take for me to forget her?
I remember the way her arms would wrap around me. 
As I grew taller our hugs changed, 
she would have to use my height to steady her
but she always enveloped me 

Now I’ve started to forget and remember.
She smelled like home and took some of my heart with her
But she taught me how to love
and accept what I deserved
