"I miss you. Not in some cheesy, let's hold hands and be together forever way. I just miss you. Plain and simple. I miss your presence in my life. I miss you always being there for me. I miss my best friend." It's sad because it's true.
But then I realized that I was holding on to something that didn't exist anymore, that the person I missed didn't exist anymore. People change, and we can wish they wouldn't all day long, but that never works.
