"If you're alone, I'll be your shadow. If you want to cry, I'll be your shoulder. If you want a hug, I'll be your pillow. If you need to be happy, I'll be your smile...but anytime you need a friend, I'll just be me."
Hey you, my little college graduate!
I can't believe you did it, you graduated college. You get to move onto the next big chapter in your life. I miss you a bunch already, but that's not why I'm writing you this letter. I'm writing you to wish you all the luck in the world and remind you of why I'll always be here for you, no matter how far. Let's reminisce for a moment: remember when we met? At your townhouse when I was introduced to you, and you thought I was mean because I didn't talk at all, but in reality I was just shy. That story still makes me laugh.
Remember all the lunches we had together? All the funny videos we've taken of each other and all our jokes. Oh, and how I love your family and I'm "going to marry your brother." Your "ghetto, crayon box smelling" bug? Your "ghetto fab" bedroom? I don't think I've ever had a friend like you, and I can't thank whoever is up there enough for bringing you into my life.
I miss going to Hummel's and staying up late even though we both had to get up early. I miss going to breakfast just for omelets. I miss sleepovers in your room by pushing the couches together and making a huge bed. Heck, I even miss taking care of your completely intoxicated self.
I like that we have so much in common like watching cartoons, listening to country music, and coloring. There's so much more than that. I'm still in shock that you're not going to be on campus next year. It breaks my heart. I'll always be here for you, no matter what time, what day, what month, or year. I'll always be just a text, phone call, or drive away. I mean, you are going to be my maid of honor, and the godmother to my children. We're supposed to grow old and drink cheap wine while we talk crap about people we used to hate.
We're supposed to go to baseball games and try to talk to the players, but get ignored. And then force you to get out of the car and make the hot one sign my phone case. Plus, I promise not to kill you in any car accidents (only bruise your knees).
I love you and I miss you more than words can describe. I wish you all the best of luck on your next chapter in life at HACC. And hey, maybe one day you'll be cleaning my teeth.
Love, Your Best Friend, the baby still in college.
