When someone passes
"His smile brightened the world"
But yours really did.
And since you've been gone
the world has truly been dimmer.
"He was an amazing friend"
But you really were.
When you were needed you always showed up.
"He was one in a million"
You were one in 7billion.
There never has been and never will be another like you.
"Not a day goes by that losing him doesn't hurt"
But I honestly feel your absence every single day.
"He was taken too soon"
No matter how old you were it would have been too soon.
But it doesn't.
The hole you left behind isn't just going to close.
It's a wound that is ripped open every time I hear your name, a song, a word, a movie, anything that brings up a memory.
I just learn to hide it better every day.
A lot of things that fit
But none of them make it feel any better.
In loving memory,
Now and always,
8/5/92 - 12/22/12
