If I could live one day over again, it would be my last day with you.  I wouldn’t be too busy packing boxes for college, I wouldn’t be distracted by barking dogs and I wouldn’t let you walk out that door without memorizing every little detail of your face, voice and laugh.  I am a better person because of you and I’m so, so grateful for our time together.  I find you now in the warmth of sunkissed cheeks after a day on the mountain, in the breeze of a star-filled night, in the laugh of a child that yearns to defy gravity the way you once did; I find you in the cherubic cheeks of your newborn niece’s photo.  I find you in every place pure and innocent and beautiful and good.  I’ll see you on the flip side, my faraway friend.  Know you are greatly loved and greatly missed.
