On Tuesday (Mar. 31), the one year anniversary of the death of Nipsey Hussle, Lauren London took to Instagram to pen her late boyfriend a bittersweet poem.

In London’s post, she shared an old photograph of herself with Nipsey inside of his apparel store The Marathon Clothing.

The poem reads:

Time is deceptive
It’s been a year since you transitioned
The pain is as heavy today as it was a year ago
God knows I would give anything to see you again
I didn’t think I was going to survive a second of any of this
Prayers have kept me together
The kids keep me going and
Gods Grace and Mercy have carried me this far
As today makes a year
I stand strong because of you
Because I know you wouldn’t have it any other wayAs today makes a year
I stand strong because of you
Because I know you wouldn’t have it any other way
Because I recall every late-night conversation we had about resilience and fear
Because you were my greatest teacher and because you are still with us, in spirit

With
every breath I take
I honor you
I carry this pain with purpose
I promise I will make you proud
I promise to apply everything you taught me
In life and in death
Ermias Asghedom
There will never be another
Until we are together again….
I love you beyond human understanding ( but you know that already)
