It's been one year since I lost my best friend, my heart, my biggest fan, my love, my father.
One year since I heard your voice or Gimli's "You have my axe" ringtone that announced your daily "Good Morning Merry Sunshine"s.
One year since I don't pick up the phone anymore when I'm sad, to hear the words that made any problem in the world seem like the smallest most unimportant thing (and your favorite mantra: "This Too Shall Pass").
And three years since I last hugged the best person I have ever known.
It has been a full year. But... it doesn't seem to have been that long, because you are in everything I do.
Everything I touch, I add the magic that you taught me to see.
Everyone I interact with, I do so with the kindness that you taught me to have.
In every fall, I get up with the strength I so often saw you muster.
Everything I do, I do with the intent of making you proud.
& in all those things, in every fiber of my being and in everything that I am, you are eternal.
I love you more, I love you 3.1~
