Good Bye Dear Friend

Today an old friend has left me. Even though I only knew him for 3 years we'd spent alot of time together during that period. At times we were inseperable. One of my few travelling companions these past couple of years. My yellow pump thermos broke today. By broke, I mean shattered. The inside glass part.. is no more. *sigh*

It was a gift given by my old roomate Troy. He found it at a garage sale when I was down in Guatemala. He emailed me and told me he had a gift for me. He kept me in suspense for a few months. And it was worth it. I've often referred to it as the best gift I never knew I wanted. But the moment I saw it I knew it was something special. And now it is gone. Now it is time to grieve. Time to mourn. Good bye Ol' Yellow Pump Thermos.

At least this last little while we had fun, you and I. The picture adventures. Visiting old friends. The recent trip to Abbotsford. The wedding. And the start of school. Now it's time for me to go on, on my own.

I'll miss you. I'll always remember you, and the time we had together. I don't know who's hands you passed through on your journey to mine but I hope these last few years were good to you.

Adios my friend, adios.

Of into the sunset you go. Into the west. Just like Bilbo and Frodo and Gandalf.
