It’s things like this that I’ll really miss; the colours, the vibrancy, the life.

I don’t want you to leave but I can’t make you stay because I would risk losing everything – we both would. I can’t tell you what to do; the only thing I can do is tell you how much I’ll miss you.

I’ll miss your warmth and beauty. I’ll miss your liveliness and generosity. But what I’ll miss the most is what you brought out of people – you gave them life and made them better. Something like that is so hard to find, so I hope you carry it with you always.

I know that one day you’ll come back and bring that captivating aura with you. Until then, all I can do is sit and wait, patiently.
