Not too long ago

To my best friend and my brother. I picked you up when I was only 7. You have been with me ever since. Well, until March 3. The following days have been the worst days of my life.

I miss you so much. It's only been 8 years. I remember walking into the pound and seeing you. I knew who I was going to pick straight away.

All I can think about is you and all the things we did together. I wish that you were still here with me. I love you so much, and I always will.

This pain is constant and unbearable. If there is a heaven, I know you will be there waiting for me.

I'm so sorry for any of the times I kicked you out of my room or didn't give you a pat or scratch your tummy. The time has gone so fast, it feels like just yesterday that we were driving with you in the back seat and you jumped out of the window that only had a tiny bit open and fell on the road. You just got up and kept running.

Or the time when we had to replace my bedroom window because you jumped through it... when it was closed.

I miss you so much, boy. I love you, and I will never forget you.
