The only thing we ran out of is time," he wrote along with his stepson's picture. "Since you left I ain't been quite the same. I wonder if you miss me, do I make you proud. Know you're watching me, I feel your spirit. I keep you right by my side. #Stronger Happy 16th Birthday, Kile$. We miss you." https://www.instagram.com/p/BSPNETUg1OW/?taken-by=usher
