sharing the stage for the last time.

tonight is opening night of 
romeo & juliet.
so happy the performance is almost here.
we've been rehearsing for what feels like forever,
and nothing beats the thrill of finally performing.
as happy as it will be to do what i love most in life,
tonight may cause a few tears to fall.
it's my best friend's last performance with the company.
he's been more than just a best friend to me,
he's been my everything in life.
{and i can even say he's been my romeo.}
i'm happy for his adventures that will soon come his way
and for the new chapter in life he's about to begin. 
i'm forever thankful for the memories we've shared on stage together,
the diet cokes we've laughed over, and the countless days
we have spent in the company of one another.
i love you joe.
good luck on your last performance as romeo,
you will be nothing short of the best.
