An Ode to A Friend
It’s strange how empty my world is without you.
I realize now how much I took our relationship for granted. You were always there when I needed you. Offering comfort when I was miserable and laughter when I was down.
I don’t know what I’ll do now- I’m lost.
Nothing can fill the void you’ve left behind.
I think back on our life together, all the things we’ve seen and places we’ve been. It won’t be the same without you.
Goodbye, old friend. You were faithful right up until the end.
With a final caress, I cover you up and place you in your final resting place- the same box your replacement arrived in.
Hello, I am your new Kindle. I can’t wait for our journey to begin.
