She said the little things were there
but the big things were gone
not realizing that the little things
are what you build the big things on
About: This week I sign the divorce papers so my ex has been on my mind. One of the things she told me before I left was: “The little things are there but the big things are gone” and I can remember thinking that the little things are what is important. They serve as the foundation. Sometimes I wish I would have just said that but I know it wouldn’t have done any good. Her mind was made up. She knew what she wanted and it was no longer me.
