Remember how we both forgot our last anniversary?
And we went on with life as if it was okay to skip October 12
That night I cried myself to sleep 
While you were in the living room watching tv
I’m the type of person that never forgets names, faces, or special days
And I always make plans in advance 
We said we would celebrate the following weekend but we didn’t
What’s the point of celebrating on the wrong day?

Two weeks ago when we were moving out 
You mentioned that you were sad
You had found all my handwritten love notes in your messy car
It hit me that you never wrote me one
Even though you always gave amazing gifts 
I wish I had  something in your handwriting 
Something that could capture the love we had

This March marks 21 years of ICE CBP & DHS terrorizing our immigrant communities.

Ever since their creation, ICE and CBP have targeted, detained, abused and deported immigrants while separating loved ones and tearing apart communities. Donate 21 dollars to help us fight back against the 21 years of terror.
