'Now you're gone and I'm lost without you here now, but I know I gotta live and make it somehow'.

It’s been a long time. 13 years. Since you’ve been gone. I miss you more and more each year. I promise myself every year that I won’t cry as I lock myself in my room, blasting your tunes much to my mother’s dismay, hoping and wishing we still had our one in a million, babygirl, Aaliyah. I can’t help but fathom the thought of you still being here. I want you with us. Yes it’s selfish but you deserve it. I was only a year old when you died so of course I didn’t know anything about you. But I grew up listening to and watching you. I remember my brother had a huge poster of you on his closer door. I ended up taking it from him and putting it on my door. You captivated me with your beautiful looks and personality. We owe you these blogs and fanpages because you’re worth all of it. Rest in paradise my queen, I will always cherish and love you. ~ AaliyahForever
