pencil sketch on paper

“every time you make me smile
i sink and feel a little closer
to the rhythms in your life
i sit and think, as we get older
as we get older
i see the sparkle in your eye…
…without you i’m not the same
thoughts of you fill my brain”

there. simple as it should be. i have been on a IF hiatus due to a non-stop workflow, and have been searching for inspiration. i am trying to make a fresh start, and i thought this was a great topic to delve in. i quickly sketched something that fit the bill. i also tried to darken up the sketch a bit when scanning it. i was inspired by a song written by an old friend, aaron. aaron wrote this about his wife, whom he met on a train, and the song is appropriately titled “Smitten.” Listen to it here
