A Six-Word Memoir® is the story of your life—some part of it or all of it—told in exactly six words.

In classrooms and boardrooms, churches and synagogues, veteran's groups and across the dinner table, Six-Word Memoirs have become a powerful tool to catalyze conversation, spark imagination or simply break the ice.

Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

I'm sorry but... I miss you

When he left for the Marines I promised him that I wouldn't miss him too much, and that I'd skype him a lot and still talk to him.
This is the first time in over a month that I've got to talk to him, and he can hardly respond because he's doing a million things and is on the other side of the world.

Before he left he said he was going to try his hardest to be back to see me graduate, and I now know that it's not going to be possible. And it's just now hitting me that he still has another 18 months of this deployment.

He's not biologically my brother, but he'll always be my big brother... and I miss him like crazy.
