Days turn into weeks, months rush to years
Suddenly too many years have passed
Too many words left unsaid
Now we’re two strangers with a past
Once a vital extension of me
Endless conversations turned into awkward silences
Barely able to string two sentences

You built a home in my heart
Slowly dug a hole and made your roots
A special place, your own space
Hours upon hours building dreams
There was no tear you couldn’t dry
Not a problem you couldn’t help me carry
Tireless in your love for me
There were no words to describe what we felt
No words are needed
No one can match the shape of your eyes, the turn of your smile
No one can say the right words, bring out the right laugh

Through your love I learned to love myself, the beauty of my heart
Through your encouragement I learned to believe myself, I saw my worth
I mourn the years of memories
The loss of my sounding board, my confidant
I weep for years of lost laughter
The miles of unspent moments
The person who gave me tough love when I needed it
My adviser, my shoulder to lean on, my no.1 fan…
My best friend
