It was a privilege to grow beside you.
It was a privilege to look up to you.
However, now you are gone.
Gone too early before I have finished growing.
You shared your knowledge of life with me.
I looked up to you for guidance, and you were always there.
Now I feel alone, adrift without you.
But I give not up on life.
I go on with life with you only in my heart instead of also beside me.
