I instinctively travelled to our designated meeting place today, hoping that somehow I'd see your face full of joy sitting atop the log next to the stream once more. I longed to see that smile one more time, eyes sparkling full of life. You always shined so brightly and radiated intelligence just by sitting still. You complained that the insects were always out to get you, but I like to think of them as living beings that are just as attracted to your energy as I am. In our short time together, I learned so much about you. I learned of your love for nature and how it's stronger than your love for yourself. I learned how you don't travel without a purpose, but to find yourself and help those around you find themselves.
I still wish you had stayed. I wish you could have sat there with me for eternity. I would have watched a billion sunsets with you and never get tired. I could watch you prancing around with the glow of the fireflies surrounding you forever. Our place will forever be our place in my heart. I don't know where you are now, but I hope that you found true happiness wherever else it is. If one day we reunite, I'll thank the universe for everything leading up to that moment and the moment itself. You are the most beautiful human being on the earth, both inside and out.
