WHAT'S LEFT
So much of you remains; your warmth still comforts me, your repartee still informs my thoughts and makes me smile, that easy way you had that put my tragedies into perspective still calms my anxieties.
 
Day by day, I discover parts of you that never left. Your influence is so great that  I find myself still doing those things we did together, as if it's my own idea.
 
When I shop, or when I cook, I hear myself debating over whether you'd like this or that.
 
I don't know how long this will last. I like it and I hope it stays this way. I feel richer for having had you in my life for even a little while. But, when the day is done, I still mourn what's been lost.

Mary Lou-  I've come to the discovery that no matter who we meet in life, or for how long; We leave an impression.  It is apparent that you friend meant the world to you,  but in time, the grief will depart but the joy of the friendship and all that it meant will remain.  May all the memories be sweet ones.

A beautiful tribute, I'm sorry for your loss- though it looks like you have also gained a lot of memories and perspective. 

Nicely Penned,
Love, Rin
