I loved you so much 

And I hope that you can take my love with you 

I hope that you can take all of the memories

All of the laughs and joy

All of the hugs and dances

All of the late night convos and quarter life crises


I hope that you know that I will forever love you

And that it should’ve been me instead of you

I hope that this love can carry you from this life to the next 

And keep you warm until I can hold you again
