This is a thank you to the most amazing boy in my life. For the past 10 years he has been by my side through thick and thin and he is always full of love, happiness and positivity, I can still remember the first day I saw him ever so clearly. No words will ever begin to describe how difficult it was today to leave him behind as I take the next step in my life without him by my side. What makes it even more difficult is not knowing when I will next see him as I have no plans to come back to the UK. At the moment I’m not even sure if I want to come back for a visit but god forbid if anything goes wrong with my boy I will be on the first flight home. After everything he has done for me and after everything he has gone through with me, it’s the least I can do.
I promise I will never forget the times you comforted me when I needed it the most.
I promise I will never forget the times you made me laugh when I was filled with sadness.
I promise I will never forget the times you made me smile when smiling seemed like the hardest thing to do.
I will always remember the times when you brought happiness and laughter to my friends and family.
I will always remember the times you gave me advice without saying a word.
I will always remember the times you were there when the world felt like the loneliest place.
I tried my hardest not to cry in front of him today, I didn’t want him to think anything was wrong. I’m off on a big adventure and he’s helped me get to this point, it’s not a time for sad tears, so I wanted to try to keep everything as normal as possible. He slept with me last night and I woke up this morning to be greeted by his happy face, the perfect way to start a difficult day. We went for a walk to the fields behind my house as he has always loved being free in those fields, ever since he was a youngster. We then went and sat by the pond for a bit, not a word was spoken but nothing needed to be said, we just stayed right there in that moment.
I’m going to miss your warm greetings every time I walk through the door.
I’m going to miss having you lay next to me whilst I do my exercises and yoga.
I’m going to miss finding your hair everywhere.
I’m going to miss hearing you bark at the birds in the garden.
I’m going to miss how you somehow manage to take up most of the room on my bed.
I’m going to miss talking to you everyday.
Thank you for always being there.
Thank you for blessing my life.
Thank you for always listening.
Thank you for everything.
I will love you forever and always
