After all those years,
After all those laughs,
The counting for your departure
is truly coming down.
I want you to know
That you will be missed
But always smile and remember
That you'll achieve something big.
I hate goodbyes
And I know you do too,
But this is part of growing up
It's something you have to do.
Sometimes I look back to the past
And I start severely thinking
About all the moments we had,
The presence we'll be missing.
I remember the way your laugh,
Like the tune of a happy song,
Illuminated anyone's day,
Made it unstoppable smiling for.
I remember the moments of anger,
confusion, fights and sadness,
Then everything was fine
With a 'Hi', an 'I'm sorry' or simple silence.
I remember when you cried
And I didn't know what to do.
So I just stood there, gave you advice,
or cried with you too.
All those special moments
That I'm obviously never going to forget,
Are the ones that convince me
That we'll always be best friends.
That day in sixth grade
When we randomly talked,
Never in my mind crossed the hope
That this friendship would last.
I hope that happiness invades your life,
And that all your dreams come true.
But never forget that if you need someone,
I'll be here for you.
A whole year without you in the country
will definitely be really hard.
But you know what? I know you'll be with me,
right here, in my heart.
