I will look for you in the morning at nursery and again when I wake up from my nap.
I will save you a seat at breakfast because I will always be at the table before you.
I will reach out my hand to you when I’m diving into the ball pool and pretend you are there jumping in with me.
I will tell you to be careful when you’ve bumped me on the head.
I will read you stories, wrestle with you and wrap my arms around you when you are sad.
I will cause mischief on your behalf and blame you because you left me.
I will cry when I realise you’re not coming back but I will forgive you because you’re my best friend.
And when I see you again, I will remind you that I am still yours.
I will miss you, Niall, and all of your trains. Thank you for being my best friend and for sharing my Birthday with me.
