Even after eight years of his death,
Michael Jackson continues to be the "love" of his daughter's life.
The 19-year-old Paris Jackson shared a touching message on Instagram in the honour of her late father's 59th birthday.
She began by writing, "Birthday wishes to the love of my life, the one person who showed me what passion truly was, the one that gave me solid morals to live by and how to dream."
"I will never feel love again the way i did with you. you are always with me and i am always with you. though i am not you, and you are not me, i know with all of my being that we are one. and our souls will never change in that way. thank you for the magic, forever and always," she continued.
She has always been sharing pictures herself and her father before, including one captioned, "the OG squad".
In a follow-up Instagram post, Jackson shared a picture of herself at Sunday's MTV Video Music Awards, but a shadow of her father is seen planting a kiss on the teen's forehead.
The 'Thriller' hit-maker died of cardiac arrest in June 2009 at his Los Angeles home. He was 50.
It should be noted that Paris made headlines at the 2017 Video Music Awards with a powerful political speech, one she said her father would be proud of.
"I hope we leave here tonight remembering that we must show these Nazi, white supremacist jerks in Charlottesville and all over the country that as a nation with liberty as our slogan we have zero tolerance for their violence, hatred, and their discrimination. We must resist," she said.
Paris wasn't the only family member to honor Michael on Tuesday. Michael's older sister, La Toya Jackson, shared a Twitter photo of herself and Michael smiling.
