today i’m gonna talk about someone very important to me. i’m sure some of you guys are done hearing about him, but i have to- especially today.
today, march 28, 2019, marks one year since my friend, timmy, took his own life.
this post won’t have a lot of info on my grief, rather, it’ll be a celebration of this beautiful human i got to know!! because wow, he was awesome!
by most people’s standards, timmy and i didn’t know each other very well. we didn’t have a conventional friendship. but then again, neither of us were very conventional. we grew up in the same town, running around on the same sidewalks, wandering across the same mountains.
but we became friends during the fall of 2017.
music brought us together, which is only fitting. music is huge in our town. it’s only right that’s what we had in common. we danced and sang to music so beautiful, it cannot be described.
i’ve never been very confident, but he showed me how to be myself. he loved me for who i was. told me i had worth. showed me how to love passionately.
gave a bit of sunshine to this cloudy girl.
today marks one year since he died, shattering countless hearts. the entire world was set off balance without his bright smile. just knowing he was gone was earth-rocking.
but before he left, he was here. he was important. he was loved. radiant. beautiful.
so to you, lova lova. a boy who was laughter. a boy who’ll never be forgotten. a boy whose life was startlingly radiant with passionate love.
to you, all this and more.
i love and miss you beyond all our sunsets.
