What does it mean to miss something or someone. Do you think back on your past and think about things that happened in your lifetime and realize you will never get that back? I do quite frequently. What do I miss the most? My grandparents. They were the backbone of my family. My family fell apart soon after they passed away. My family will never be the same again. I miss the Christmases, the family gatherings, just spending time with them. Now, there are no more Christmases, there are only arguments with family gatherings, I can only go to the grave site and spend time with them. I miss those days. That is something I will never get back again.
