Fond Farewell, Trayvon
You may be leaving, but you will always have a place in my heart, and I will always welcome you back. I refuse to say goodbye, so I will instead say “see ya later!” I will see you again, I know it.
The months to follow will be slow, drawn out, and even painful without your presence. There will be a certain air, a certain taste that lingers that simply lacks, and I’ll know it’s because you’re not around. It won’t be very exciting, I’m certain. It will also be difficult to find another with tastes that parallel my own to enjoy the best music with. In fact, before you depart, I wish to share one more song with you, courtesy of the Poltergiest Mansion. One of my favorite arranges of one of the most emotional songs ever by Zun.
To quote myself: “Happiness and sorrow… Victory and loss… This song is so much at once.” I’ll be completely honest, I’ve already teared up a couple times. I’m going to feel so down tomorrow, knowing that I won’t see you again for a very long time. I’ll try to be strong for you, though. I don’t want you to have to worry about me, although you may. But come back to visit when you have the chance. It’s just not the same without you around. Having seen you leave for lengthened periods of time before, I can assure you it’s very much the case.
Good luck, Trayvon. I will look forward to your return, and you can expect a grand welcome back at that time.
