Letters to Kevin

Dear Kevin,
I’m going to start off by saying life has been very difficult since you left it. Everything reminds me of you, the trees and the birds and the ocean.
You always loved nature, didn’t you?
I wanted to say thankyou, for being my bestfriend even in the short time we had together. You made me notice a lot. You taught me how to be myself. You taught me how to let go. You taught me to love. For that I cannot express enough gratitude.
I promise, you will never and cannot be replaced by anyone else, not by new friends or old ones. You mean too much to me for me to do that.
I hope that wherever you are now, whatever you are now, someone is taking care of you.
Have you found a new best friend?
Have you replaced me yet? Please don’t.
I sometimes think what life would be like if you were still here. Would I still be the same person? No, I don’t think so. I think I would be an even better person than I am now. You make me a good person.
I miss you. Please come back. I need you.
Best Friend.
