I spent three years with you now you will spend an eternity in the sky. You were my first boyfriend and will now be my first funeral. It seems like yesterday that we were children hiding in my father's garden now we're all grown up and you have passed on.

It's hard for me to imagine that someone I once held the hand of is now lying lifeless in a morgue somewhere until you can be burried or cremated. I know that we went our separate ways years ago and I did not speak to you after being in a bitter state but I wished you the best in life.

But as of now I hope you are doing well in the afterlife and reuniting with those you lost and find comfort there.

R.IP Nehemiah, I'm sorry the way things ended between us.
My ex boyfriend from many years ago passed away last week by suicide. They found his body on Saturday evening, receiving the news from his mother. I haven't seen or spoken to him in eight years but I can't help but feel a loss. I have never experienced the death of someone I was once close to so I'm still processing this one day at a time.
