My big brother: Michael B. Jordan pens moving tribute to Chadwick Boseman

Michael B. Jordan has penned a harrowing tribute to his friend and fellow actor, Chadwick Boseman.

The pair's strong friendship clearly meant everything to the 33-year-old, who tragically lost his friend to cancer last month.

Alongside a series of photos of him and Boseman, he wrote: "I’ve been trying to find the words, but nothing comes close to how I feel. I’ve been reflecting on every moment, every conversation, every laugh, every disagreement, every hug…everything. I wish we had more time."

He said the last time he spoke to Boseman, he said they would always be connected, "You said we were forever linked , and now the truth of that means more to me than ever. Since nearly the beginning of my career, starting with All My Children when I was 16 years old you paved the way for me. You showed me how to be better, honor purpose, and create legacy. And whether you’ve known it or not…I’ve been watching, learning and constantly motivated by your greatness."

He added: "I wish we had more time."

"Everything you’ve given the world … the legends and heroes that you’ve shown us we are … will live on forever. But the thing that hurts the most is that I now understand how much of a legend and hero YOU are. Through it all, you never lost sight of what you loved most. You cared about your family , your friends, your craft, your spirit. You cared about the kids, the community, our culture and humanity. You cared about me.

"You are my big brother, but I never fully got a chance to tell you, or to truly give you your flowers while you were here. I wish we had more time," he continued.

The Black Panther star added, "I'm more aware now than ever that time is short with people we love and admire. I’m gonna miss your honesty, your generosity, your sense of humor, and incredible gifts. I’ll miss the gift of sharing space with you in scenes. I’m dedicating the rest of my days to live the way you did. With grace, courage, and no regrets. “Is this your king!?” Yes . he . is!  Rest In Power Brother."
