So this is where we part, My Friend,
and you'll run on, around the bend,
gone from sight, but not from mind,
new pleasures there you'll surely find.

I will go on, I'll find the strength,
life measures quality, not its length.
One long embrace before you leave,
share one last look, before I grieve.

There are others, that much is true,
but they be they, and they aren't you.
And I, fair, impartial, or so I thought,
will remember well all you've taught.

Your place I'll hold, you will be missed,
the fur I stroked, the nose I kissed.
And as you journey to your final rest,
take with you this....I loved you best.

One year ago today I said goodbye to my best friend. I can't believe it's been a whole year since I last saw Prince's face and snuggled into his thick fur, a whole year since he looked at me with those big brown eyes that melted my heart. Sometimes it seems like an eternity since we were together though, I feel like a piece of me has been missing for so long.

I miss you my main man and think about you every day. There are so many memories of you, I am so glad I found you and decided you were the one for me. If only our time together didn't have to be cut short. I will treasure you always.
