It's been almost five years since we last saw each other. I still remember our last day together.
We just barely began a new chapter in our life. I didn't know that chapter would be about us departing. I still feel it was too soon. But I knew there was nothing we could do about it. You knew it too.
Almost eight years of friendship we have. Time has passed by so quickly. We both have grown up a lot.
It was hard to watch you leave, despite the chaos that circled around me at the time. You are one of the very few friends that I shared my inner demons with.
I made a promise to you that I will always be there for you when you need me. Even if I'm limited by our options of communication. I will always look out for you.
Even if I'm more than five hundred miles away from you. I still stand by my promise.
You are someone very dear to me. Someone I hold close to my heart. I miss you a whole lot but I know you're doing well.
Almost five years later, we started a new chapter in our life. A chapter where we learn to become adults. It's exciting but also depressing. Did you ever feel that way?
Life is going to get harder. We will meet new people and study harder for school than ever before.
But that won't get in the way of my promise.
I'm grateful that I met you and became your best friend, as you became my best friend. Our friendship still means a whole lot to me. That special connection.
Thank you for making me want to become a better, more positive person. Thank you for giving me a reason to smile every day. Even now.
