You were such a big part of my life. Some days it just feels normal, without you.

Other days it’s the worst pain I’ve ever felt. The gap in my heart will never be fully filled.

Temporary things and temporary people in this world will never be able to fill your shoes. Your smile was contagious and all you wanted was to make people laugh.

Everyone who ever had an interaction with you always left with a smile on their face, you made sure of it. You radiated such an energy that I’ve never seen radiated by anybody.

Most importantly, you were my biggest supporter. You always told me how proud you were of me, even when nobody else did.

Even when I had nobody there, you were always there. You made sure I had everything that I needed, even when the pain was too much to bear.

Now, I’m left here, alone, facing battles by myself, not hearing your laugh, not being able to talk to you. Not seeing you when I come home. I feel broken.

When you left so did a piece of me. And I don’t know how long it’ll take me to find that piece of me again.

I try searching, in people, in materialistic things, and just when I think I found it again, it slips right through the palm of my hand.

Everything is temporary, everyone is temporary. And I think that is the hardest thing that we have to face on this planet.

Understanding the idea that everything truly is temporary, and once we are left alone again, it’s practically earth-shattering.
