Dear Aaliyah…

          First of all happy birthday! You would have been 32 years old today. I would be telling a lie if I said I didn’t listen to your music everyday, because I do. I would also be lying if I said I have gotten over God taking you from this world. I can say I look up to you in more ways than one, listening to your music & watching your movies/videos has taught me so many things & encouraged me to do so many things in life. Without you I wouldn’t have been able to make it through some break-ups, dry some tears, rock out, or just plain smile.I will forever be grateful for the time God allowed you to be on this Earth & bless us with your beautiful music.

 I can say you are one of the first people that showed me the REAL meaning of music. No one will ever be able to replace you. As long as I am alive I will be sure that your legacy lives on. You showed me how to  Read  Between the Lines & how to be a Best Friend & More Than a Woman. You taught me to never give niggas play with that Loose Rap & to make sure they’re Extra Smooth(LOL). You told me Age Ain’t Nothin but a Number & to go with whatever Rocks the Boat. Needless to say, I Care 4 U. 

  I know time goes on & the world can’t stop because you’re gone, but each time I hit the play button & your voice comes out the speakers it feels like the world is moving just a little bit slower & things get a little bit better. Hopefully one day I can amount to the woman you were. If I even become half of the woman you were that would be fine with me. I will always & forever love you. I genuinely thank-you for the beauty you have left in this world. Many may not understand the place this letter is coming from, or how someone who has never met a person can feel such a strong connection towards them. I can’t explain it & they probably will never know unless it happens to them. You are forever in my heart & I can’t wait to meet you in the after life. Happy Birthday & Continue to rest in paradise.

Love always,

     Fabiana <3
