As the hours slowly pass and the sun rises over the hilltop, I lie awake trying to think of what life would be like without you. A life that hasn't been blessed with your beauty or the kindness of your heart can truly not be possible, for you reach out to even the simplest of souls, touching their hearts with love and their minds with hope.
The light in your eyes shows me that you care so much about other people that you show it off always with that beautiful smile you wear upon your face. Your soft touch tells me that you'll be there no matter how far I fall.
When I hold you in my arms, I know that I will never forget you, because you are the part of me that I hope never changes.
And when I see you laugh, I know that it is truly a miracle that you are here in my life. Because without you, I wouldn't have such an amazing best friend, and there would be no star in my sky to show me the way.
