Losing a best friend leaves you with only memories. Of their birthdays that you have memorized. Of all the good days you spent with them. Of all the firsts in life you shared with them. Of all the new people you met and became friends with. Of all the little things that happened since that they couldn't be a part of, events and occasions that you wish you could have shared with them. Memories you try to recall as they fade away with every passing birthday.
Like an immortal firefly, those memories continue to flash and shine over time. The say time heals and that everyone deals with grief in their own way. I have no idea why I'm posting this, but when I heard this song recently, it reminded me of Vijay who would have turned 37 today. Happy Birthday my friend, your memories will continue to live on through all the people whose lives you touched.
