A best friend is a promise, which is such an overused quote. It’s been four years since you’ve been gone, and I still feel like I’m pissing a piece of me without you here. You’re birthday just passed recently, you would’ve been eighteen. There would’ve been so many opportunities that life could have given you, and knowing that you never had the chance to do the things I have done or will be doing hurts me everyday.
You were truly my best friend, Alexis. While I got hurt, you were always there. When my father’s disease worsened, you were there. While my parent’s relationship crumbled, I could look to you. Never once did you think twice about being there for me, or anyone for that matter.
I wish I could talk about the good times we’ve had recently, but unfortunately I have spent the last four years with you only as a memory and a part of me. I still do think about you every day and I know for a fact that you don’t dwell on anything, you’re too busy being someones angel.
Thank you for everything you taught me and continued to teach me after you were gone. You will always be my best friend, even if I can’t text you when my heart is broken or I’m overwhelmed, I still know you’re there. <3
