YESTERDAY | ELIZA
Entered your life, a stranger you had never met. You took me in with open arms, rife with a warmth I will never forget. Together, we stood and faced the world, creating memories along the way. Now, as nostalgia's sails are unfurled, I thank you for every single day. For you were a constant guide in times of joy and of distress. With you, I've never had to hide; my heart, my soul, my very best.
