Saying goodbye

On the first day of my last year of secondary school, I found out my best friend was moving to New Zealand. I’d like to tell you how it feels to find out something like that. To find out the person you trust most in the world, the only person that has stuck with you through thick and thin, the person who you consider the other half of your pair, is moving to the other side of the world. It hurts. But that is obvious. It opens a hole in your heart that is deep and growing. You can try and try and fill this hole by creating happy memories using the time you have left together, but in reality these moments are slipping down the hole. It means every time you both laugh together, or have a chat about boys or the future, at some point one of you will catch the eye of the other and do that half-smile that means “I’m going to miss this.”
