And I know this will be the hardest thing I have had to do.
Saying goodbye to you.
It’s hard to believe its been a whole year,
We have been through so much together.
Countless laughs,
And sometimes tears.
In my memory, there is a certain place where I keep memories of you and me.
Sometimes I wonder how my life would be different without you.
I cannot even begin to imagine.
You had the loudest, goofiest laugh.
The smile that could melt everyone’s heart.
You could laugh at me when I did something stupid.
The way you helped me was incredible.
I know I helped you too.
You have had a rough life,
And getting away was always your dream.
Now here it is,
You remember the day we had Culvers?
Yes, the day you ordered a hamburger.
And when it came with cheese and you cried.
The same day I scraped all the cheese off.
I knew everything about you.
What about the time you left me four voicemails?
I could not help but laugh at how horrible your singing was in them.
Now every time I hear those songs,
I can hear your voice in the back of my head.
I know I have moved on.
But you are still my best friend.
You were right,
Once we started talking,
There was no way of getting out of it.
I wish you had treated me better.
And even though you have said you are sorry,
And even though you think you have changed,
I could never take you back.
I think part of the reason you made your decision to leave was because
I have moved on.
You know that you have nothing holding you back to this little town.
I am truly happy for you,
Really.
You deserve this,
Follow your dreams,
Never let go of the sight,
You are so close now.
I hope this all goes well for you.
Goodbye Sunshine…
