My Milipede.. I was such a young and stupid kid when I left you to join the army.. you were my best friend, my confidante, my shoulder, my strength, my smile, and even when I hurt you so unexpectedly you still showed up for me when I needed you. Every single time. I will forever regret leaving you, but I was so thankful to have you back in my life those last 2 years. I miss you every day and talk about you often. All of your silly jokes, I tell them to others and wait for the laughs to subside before I give you the credit. God, i miss your sense of humor. Every time I have a rough day, I think of you teasing me saying, "hey Panda poop, your face is leaking". Only now do I realize what I gave up, how absolutely incredible you were to me. And only now do I realize that every man after you has only fallen short. You were and still are the only man who could ever get me out of a funk, make me laugh when I didn't want to, and make the world seem like it wasn't so tough. I love you so much, and I'm sorry we had just started bonding again and I never told you. I miss you.. I know you already forgave me, because that's just who you were.. but I hope someday I can finally look you in the eyes again and tell you just how much you meant to me.
