“Baby we had so many goals that we were supposed to achieve together.
We were supposed to get married early next year, we planned to go to thailand for our honeymoonWe were looking at places to buy we were on the verge of getting our bond so we could get our own place together, we were so damn excited to call it our own place We wanted to have babies together, two sons.
We wanted to get two cream chow chows as pets, we were supposed to live happily ever after. Baby every dream I had, every single one was with you in it babe! Now every bit of hope’s and dreams is crushed.
Words cannot explain the torture that’s going on in my heart knowing that I don’t have you no more, it’s a feeling that nobody can ever understand because nobody in the world could love the way we loved each other?. You were the love of my life, my better half, my soul mate and my best friend.
Whenever I am down you’re the only person who can make me feel better, I never been this down in my entire life and I don’t have you here too make me feel better. I love you more than I love myself I love you so much it hurts so bad when I think off what happened to you and even though I’m a grown man I break down crying.
You thought me how to love, you the only girl I ever loved and now I don’t have you. But I know you’re in a better place now RIP my Queen?”
